Abstract

The aim of this study is to critically discuss dispute resolution pertaining to workers' rights in Iran. The right to recourse to settlement forum in the Islamic Labour Council or Dispute Settlement Forum as provided in Articles 157 and 158 of the Labour Act is in practice, restricted. Based on Article 157 of the Labour Act, 1990 the first step in workplace disputes settlement requires parties to a conflict to seek a straight forward agreement failing this, they are referred to Islamic Labour Councils. Although, this function of the Islamic Labour Councils does not feature in the Law on Formation of Islamic Labour Councils, the Labour Act, 1990 Article 157 emphasizes it as the second level of conflict settlement In this study, the researchers propose changes to Iranian labour law so that the law will be in conformity with the ILO standards.
