Who is Entitled to Execute Legal Actions on Behalf of the Employer?

 

Who is entitled to execute legal actions on behalf of the employer?

     
   
 

 

In labour-law relations, a statutory body or a member of the statutory body shall execute legal actions for an employer who is a legal person; an employer who is a natural person shall act in person.

 

Legal actions may also be executed on their behalf by employees empowered by them

 

Other employees of the employer, in particular executives of his/her organisational units, shall be entitled as bodies of the employer, to execute on behalf of the employer legal actions arising from their functions as determined by organisational regulations. 

 

What if he did overstep his competence in labour-law relations?

       If a statutory body or member of statutory body or empowered employee overstepped their competence in labour-law relations, by way of legal action, such actions shall not be binding for the employer if the employee was aware, or must have been aware, that such statutory body or empowered employee overstepped their competence. This shall also apply in case of legal action done by employee of the employer who was neither authorised thereto by his/her function nor empowered thereto.
