There are numerous tribunals which deal with disputes between employer and employee. It is the nature of the employment which determines which tribunal one must turn to.
Where the employer is the Government: Disputes must be brought before the Public Service Appeals Board ("PSAB"). The Chairman of the PSAB is Mr John Renaud.
Where the employer is in the private sector: Disputes must be brought before the Employment Department at Independence House. A mediation session is arranged between the parties. If no settlement is possible, the aggrieved party may then file an employment case before the Employment Tribunal, which sits at Huteau Lane.
Where the employer is located at an International Trade Zone ("ITZ"): In the case where one's employment is governed by the ITZ Employment Regulations, disputes are heard by the Seychelles International Business Authority ("SIBA") acting in its capacity as the ITZ Employment Authority.
In general employment grievances must be lodged within 14 days of the act which has caused the dispute. Failure of a party to lodge a grievance to the correct authority in time may bar the grieving party from pursuing their grievance any further.
