Since 2009, internal resolution of UN labor disputes has taken place through the UN Internal Justice System, which is managed by the UN Office of Administration of Justice.
In this system, UN employees who have a dispute are encouraged to use ADR methodologies, rather than litigation, to resolve their work-disputes. This is facilitated by the UN Ombudsman and Mediation Services.
UN employees also have additional options for seeing a formal resolution of their work-related disputes.
During the tribunal process, the employee is eligible to receive legal counsel from the Office of Staff Legal Assistance.
