The Employment Relations (Jersey) Law 2007 defines and regulates Trade Unions. Three Codes of Practice underpin the law.
The Jersey Employment Tribunal also acts as the Registrar of Trade Unions. Unions must be registered in Jersey in order to seek recognition rights and to receive protection in certain circumstances.
Reference to the UK is made in the Trade Unions FAQs, on occasions, simply to explain how various issues are dealt with elsewhere or to provide examples of good practice.
