Our advisors offer support and guidance in all employment-related enquiries. Among others, we cover the following questions:
Our skilled labour law specialists can help you solve indifferences between you and your employer through negotiations, including matters such as employment conditions, your right to compensation for an invention or wrongful dismissal. You are entitled to legal support if you have been a member of the Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers for at least three months.
If your case cannot be settled through negotiations with your employer, our lawyers can represent you all the way to the highest court of justice. Please note that legal assistance is subject to eligibility.
Legal assistance can be granted to the union’s members in order to represent them in legal courts, in arbitration panels and against public authorities. Legal assistance is granted based on the principle of equal treatment. The prospect of a successful outcome of a case in court will improve the chances of eligibility for legal assistance.
Our legal assistance covers the following areas:
The granted right to legal assistance means that the Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers pay your legal fees if we represent you in court. Above, we cover the costs of the opposing party if you lose the case. The legal assistance does not cover any damages the court orders you pay. Above, legal assistance does not encompass costs for arbitration procedure based on an agreement between a member and an employer. Legal assistance does only apply to cases brought forward in Swedish courts, Swedish arbitration panels and against Swedish public authorities.
Members are not entitled to individual legal support related to disputes which started within three months after the date of joining the trade union. The same waiting period applies for the right to individual legal assistance.
