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, collaboration with the European Judicial Training Network to promote Europe-wide training of 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 most recent (21st) Annual Conference entitled “Working Abroad”, took place in Prague, Czech Republic, on 8th, 9th and 10th June 2017.

Details of next year’s 22nd Annual Conference of the EALCJ (7-9 June 2018) will be made available on this web-site. Full reports from all of the Association’s past Conferences can also be accessed on this web-site
