Legal Alert Labor | October 2017

October 18, 2017

In the attached document, prepared by the Labor and Employment team of M&B, we refer to a very important ruling dictated a few days ago by the Court of Appeals of Santiago, under which it was established that Labor Courts do not have jurisdiction  to hear claims against the decisions made by the National Labor Director, with regards to the qualification of minimum services. For better understanding purposes, please note that ‘minimum services’ is an administrative procedure prior to the execution of a strike, which seeks to determine the minimum number of employees that have to render services under a strike, in order to protect company property, guarantee public utility services and prevent accidents or the health and safety of the general population.
