Among its units, ATE has a legal unit which is one of the most important units of the Association in terms of its functions. Since its establishment through its legal unit, ATE has been providing to its members a range of legal services especially in the field of labour.
Members have been positively utilizing and enjoying this service through telephone calls, fax messages, short message services, letters, emails and face to face interaction.
Through this unit, the Association has been able to solve many labour related problems for its members. In the members’ satisfaction survey which was conducted recently, members expressed their positive satisfaction of legal services rendered by ATE. However, members do not report labour simmering problems on time, and as a result the parties end up in courts in matters which could have been settled out of court. We urge our members that whenever a labour problem is likely to due to some prevailing circumstances, they should contact ATE as soon as possible for early control measures. In so doing we shall be able to settle many cases.
Representation before CMA and Labour Court
The functions of the unit are not only limited in advising members, we also represent members before courts of law whenever they seek our assistance.
Representation is normally done at discounted fee compared to the market fee.
Through the process ATE has been able to solve considerable number of legal problems of its members and their employees.
