How are employment-related complaints dealt with?
 
Cyprus
The Industrial Disputes Tribunal has exclusive jurisdiction to hear and decide on disputes arising from the application of the law relating to the termination of employment. However, employees have the right to apply to a district court in relation to disputes concerning their employment where their claim is greater than the maximum amount that may be ordered by the Industrial Disputes Tribunal (two years’ salary) or for any claim arising during the first 26 weeks of employment (statutory probationary period). Recourse to one court excludes the jurisdiction of the other.

What are the procedures and timeframes for employment-related tribunals actions?
 
Cyprus
The limitation period for bringing employment claims before the Industrial Disputes Tribunal is 12 months from the date on which the dispute arose. If an employee is dismissed due to redundancy and applied to the National Redundancy Fund for compensation, he or she can also file a claim before the Industrial Disputes Tribunal within nine months of the date of receipt of the notice of rejection of the claim by the National Redundancy Fund. The limitation period for filing a claim with the district courts is six years from the date that the cause of action arose.
