Labor law is a complex legal field that constitutes a special branch of Israeli law. This is because labor laws deal with the system of workers ‘and employers’ obligations and rights, and the wide range of points between them. The dynamic reality of the work systems produces changes in case law and legislation and requires the lawyer to constantly update and monitor. Therefore, specialization in the area of labor law requires extensive and in-depth knowledge and a good knowledge of all the institutions and courts associated with them.
Employee rights in the State of Israel are anchored in binding and binding laws that can not be conditioned or waived. Basic rights such as minimum salary, vacation days and convalescence pay, pension deposits are the property of every person in any case where a relationship exists between an employee and an employer.
In the event of the unlawful dismissal of an employee, whether due to extraneous considerations or whether the dismissal procedure was not proper (for example, no hearing was held), the employee may petition the Labor Court to issue an injunction. Such a petition should be based and prove that there is a chance of success in the main lawsuit against layoffs.
The right of the dismissed employee to receive severance pay is fixed by law. An employee must work for at least one continuous year in order to be entitled to receive severance pay. In some cases, the law considers the resignation of an employee as if he were dismissed, and then he is entitled to payment of compensation (for example, resignation for the purpose of caring for the child). In recent years, the ruling expanded and interpreted the concept of the working year so that when a worker is fired even near the working year and it can be seen that his dismissal was to avoid payment of severance pay, the worker may receive severance pay as if he had completed a year’s work. There are many regulations and rulings on the matter in the rulings of the Labor Courts.
