Claims of workers in cases of employers' insolvency

In case of an employer's insolvency, workers' claims deriving from their employment should be paid out of the assets of the employer before non-privileged creditors are paid their share. This privilege shall cover at least:

• claims for wages;
• claims for holiday pay;
• claims for amounts due in respect of other types of paid absence;
• severance pay due to workers upon termination of their employment.

The payment of workers' claims should be ensured through a guarantee institution when payment cannot be made by the employer because of insolvency.
