MJLA Updates List of Labour Law Judicial Enforcement Officers

The Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs has recently issued Ministerial Decision 51/2023, which grants judicial enforcement status to certain employees of the Ministry of Labour within the scope of the Labour Law and its secondary legislation. This decision updates Ministerial Decision 2/2013, which previously outlined the judicial enforcement officers. Ministerial Decision 51/2023 essentially comprises a list of employees who are the Labour Law judicial enforcement officers.

Judicial enforcement officers are individuals granted legal authority to investigate crimes, identify perpetrators, and gather evidence for the purpose of investigation and prosecution. Given that the Labour Law plays a crucial role in driving the economy, it is important for private sector companies to be aware of the designated judicial enforcement officers within the Ministry of Labour.
