Labor cases will become more vocal under new law

The legislature took another step Thursday to increase the use of oral arguments in Costa Rica’s courts.

The measure that received approval on second and final reading extends oral presentations to the labor courts the Juzgados de Trabajo. The procedure already is in use in other courts.

In the past much of the legal presentations in Costa Rica was by written documents.

Cases in the labor courts frequently involve appeals by dismissed employees and efforts by individuals to get money from their former employer.
