REPORTING A DISPUTE BEFORE THE COMMISSION
An aggrieved party, in a contract of employment, is entitled to report his grievance - as a dispute - with the Commission, within 18 months
- since the issue giving rise to the dispute arose. A dispute would prescribe if reported out of time. Prescription may be suspended by agreement between the parties.
