ILO Global Summit builds commitment to create better world of work after COVID-19
Global leaders discussed strategies to ensure the world of work after the COVID-19 pandemic tackles the vulnerabilities exposed by the outbreak, including a lack of social protection, the informal economy, inequality and climate change.
The Industrial Court of Trinidad and Tobago successfully held its first ever remote court hearings which were conducted by Her Honour Mrs. Deborah Thomas-Felix, President of the Industrial Court along with His Honour Mr. Herbert Soverall, Vice President. These remote court hearings were introduced in direct response to the current global Coronavirus pandemic.
The pandemic along with the general social distancing guidelines to citizens, has necessitated the use of remote hearings in some aspects of the operations of the Court namely, Case Management Conferences, Directions and Mention and Reports. The objective is to provide an option for parties to utilise the Case Management Conference mechanism remotely in order to minimize the risk of transmission of the Coronavirus.
The Court first announced the implementation of this facility in its Practice Directions published in the Trinidad and Tobago Gazette on June 7, 2020. Since then, Protocols for remote hearings have been developed which stakeholders can access at the Court’s website at www.industrialcourt.org.tt and on its page. Parties who wish to avail themselves of this facility can contact the Court’s Registry at 225-4288 ext. 2201, 2213 or 2205.
The current global Coronavirus pandemic along with the general social distancing guidelines to citizens necessitates the use of remote hearings in some aspects of the operations of the Industrial Court.
