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.
- Firstly, with the prevention advisor of the internal and/or external service for prevention and protection at work.
- Secondly, with the competent regional directorate for Supervision of Well-being at Work.
- Questions on the interpretation of the legislation: in writing to the Directorate-General for Humanisation of Labour.
