The European Association of Labour Court Judges is an independent body committed to the promotion of information and contacts in the field of employment law and judicial practice. Membership is open to Labour Judges in all countries of the European Union and the European Economic Area.

The principal activities of the Association consist of an annual Conference, at which we discuss a topic of general interest to Labour Judges, and articulation of judicial views in relation to developing legislative and associated initiatives in the field of Labour Law.

The Association’s inaugural Conference was held in Bath, England, in 1996. Since then, annual Conferences have been held in a wide range of venues throughout Europe. The 21st Annual Conference entitled “Working Abroad”, took place in Prague, Czech Republic, in June 2017.

This year’s 22nd Annual Conference of the EALCJ takes place in Copenhagen between 22-24 November 2018. Full details are available on this web-site. Reports from past Conferences can also be accessed on this web-site.
