Industri Energi has received a claim for compensation for imposed quarantine for approximately 690 members against 83 businesses.
Some questions and ambiguities are still apparent in the cases we have received. Many of these questions have already been answered – Please check the designated website before contacting us.
For employees who have been transferred to a new employer as a result of the transfer of ownership of undertakings, claims must be made against the employer to whom you were transferred.
In other cases, e.g. that you have quit or been dismissed after the quarantine, the claim must be directed against the company you were employed at at the time you were in quarantine.
Medical quarantine, quarantine after leisure trips, and testing fall outside the scope of this case.
Remember to claim the correct rate and number of hours (You must NOT use the overtime rate). See
the (bottom of the) FAQ for clarifications.
A task force in the union has sorted and collected all documentation and information over several months. We have taken out more than 300 compensation claims against aproxximately 26 businesses as of now. When a dispute arises regarding the employment relationship, one can freely choose the court of jurisdiction. We have combined the cases for joint consideration by the Stavanger Conciliation Council. A settlement complaint has therefore been sent – against each business – for the employees in this business.
The primary purpose of the conciliation complaint is to have the claim brought in front of the cociliation council in order to interrupt the statute of limitations. The claims expire three years after the day the employee should have received their salary for the quarantine period. Thus, for many of you the claims will expire continuously from March/April 2023. Workshop stewards in the companies where a settlement complaint has been put forward to the conciliation council have received a copy of the claim, including a lists of names of the individuals included.
We are receiving several inquiries regarding missing names from the lists sent to the conciliation council. The reason for this is probably that these cases lack documentation, which means that we cannot send a settlement complaint. Those concerned have received an e-mail from us directly.
Those who wish to submit a claim for compensation must send us complete documentation to email@example.com – Please include the case number in the subject field of the e-mail. For the sake of the proceedings, we must set a deadline for sending the requested documentation to 10 March 2023. We will bring remaining cases before the conciliation council during April 2023.
Our aim is to put most of the settlement complaints on hold while we pursue a few cases before the district court. We have selected four businesses against which we will initiate so-called pilot cases. These will be dealt with outside the case complex outlined above and pursued separately. However, these four cases will also begin in the conciliation council.
We will try to arrange a digital information meeting for those who have submitted claims as soon as practicable. In the meantime, we reiterate that those who want to pursue the claim must send us the requested documentation as quickly as possible – no later than March 10th.
