On the concept and types of interests in labour law


The term „interest" appears in different contexts in numerous labour law provisions. In his article the author analyses different concepts of „interest" in Polish labour law and formulates their typology. In particular, he analyses the concept of „the employee's interest", „the interest of an enterprise", „the interest of the factory crew". The author states that in labour law the concept of „interest" is connected in particular with the activity of trade unions which are appointed by law to represent and protect the rights and interests of employees. A characteristic feature of the trade unions' activity is that it is carried out not only in the interest of their members but in the interest of all employees. The author discusses separately the enterprise interest represented by the manager and the interest of the crew acting through their organs. In the author's opinion, a separate character of the enterprise and crew interests should not be questioned. A more clear distinguishing between different interests (interests of an employee, of a crew, of an enterprise, of a trade union: branch, regional, general) and allowing those interests to appear and collide secures higher economic and social efficiency of the economic and political system. It also leads to strengthening the position of enterprises and crews as parties of collective labour relations. Besides, the author distinguishes enterprises which are bound to carry out the interest of the state, not their own interest, because of their links with state organs or their functioning as state organs.
