Staff representation in companies


This website provides a general outline of the Luxembourg legislation on staff representation in companies.

On 12 march 2019 staff representations will be renewed in Luxembourg. All companies employing at least 15 workers will thus have to organise social elections for staff representatives.

This website, moreover, provides companies with a tool to facilitate the process of setting up staff representations. Beyond the procedural aspects, it also provides information on the legal attributions of staff representatives.

We would like to give special thanks to the department "social dialogue and works council elections" of the Labour Inspectorate (Inspection du Travail et des Mines – ITM) for its essential contribution on the practical modalities of these elections.

The staff of the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce, the Chambre des Métiers du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, FEDIL – The Voice of Luxembourg’s Industry, the Luxembourg Bankers' Association (ABBL), the Confédération luxembourgeoise du commerce (clc) and the Fédération des Artisans remain at the entire disposal of companies for any further queries.

Additional information is available on the website of the Labour Inspectorate.
