Discrimination - Equal Treatment Act
From 1 June 2012 the number of deputy judges in the Danish Labour Court will increase. Following its ‎introduction in February, the Bill has now been adopted by the Danish Parliament.‎
Originally, the Bill was introduced after the two central organisations the Confederation of Danish ‎Employers and the Danish Confederation of Trade Unions contacted the Minister for Employment to let ‎her know that there were not enough judges at the Labour Court.‎
The Labour Court used to have 31 deputy judges, but with the amendment this number will be changed ‎to at least 31 and no more than 41 deputy judges. This means that each of the five central organisations ‎which are entitled to appoint deputy judges to the Labour Court may increase their number of deputy ‎judges by two.‎
Norrbom Vinding notes:
  • that the Bill is most likely a good measure towards speeding up average processing times; and

  • that it will be exciting to see if the organisations will actually use their power to appoint more ‎deputy judges.
