Proceedings before the competent jurisdiction

On this page

    A distinction is made between the proceedings before the competent court based on their purpose:

    If the victim wants the perpetrator of the unlawful conduct or the employer who does not comply with the regulations on well-being to be prosecuted, he will use the criminal procedure.

    If, on the other hand, he wishes to receive compensation for his damage or if he requests the cessation of the unlawful conduct, he will opt for the civil procedure.

    Finally, the worker can use the administrative procedure when he wishes to challenge an administrative legal act.

    In addition, the perpetrator of the unlawful conduct can also be punished disciplinary within the company itself.
