The Tribunal administratif du travail (TAT) is a tribunal responsible for handling various types of complaints in the construction industry. You can denounce different problems to the TAT, whether it’s a problem with your employer, an employer that refuses to hire you, your union or even another union. For example:
- Your employer or a union intimidates you or discriminates against you because of your union membership.
- An employer refuses to hire you because of your union membership.
- Your union doesn’t refer you.
- Your union doesn’t represent you properly.
Who can file a complaint with the TAT?
You can file a complaint with the TAT by yourself.
Your union can also file a complaint for you.
When to file a complaint with the TAT?
You must file your complaint with the TAT within 15 days following the incident to which your complaint refers. So you need to act quickly.
If you want to file a complaint against your union because it did not represent you properly, you will have 6 months after the event to do so.
How to file a complaint with the TAT?
A complaint to the TAT must be filed in writing. You can use the forms on the TAT website.
If you want to file a complaint against your union because it is not representing you properly, see the form on the TAT website.
Effects of a complaint with the TAT
If the TAT finds that a union or an employer has acted improperly, it may, for example:
- Oblige the union or employer who discriminated against you or intimidated you to pay compensation.
- Allow you to change your union membership if your union has not represented you properly.
