Are Employers Obliged to Provide Works Council Members with Office Equipment?, 22/10/2008

In a recent decision the Supreme Court had to decide whether an employer was obliged to pay for office equipment needed by works council members to perform their representative roles on behalf of the workforce. The court concluded that the employer must, at its own cost, provide the chairman of the works council with a mobile phone, a laptop computer and a personal digital assistant.
