Working Conditions

Which has more weight, labor law or the contract? Can a contract go against the law?

According to our legal consultant, any items contained in a contract are null and void if they contradict the law.

If an employee violates those items that are statutory - required by law - they are committing a crime and may be subject to criminal sanctions.

Other items in the contract are considered contractual agreements and the employees only legal recourse if the employer does not respect them is to file a civil claim. Such a claim can take require some time before it is settled. The employee may leave the country before the claim is settled and it will not affect the process nor the outcome.
