Abstract

The Spanish Supreme Court rendered on January, 15 2008, an important decision regarding the role of the Private Law courts in the judgment of workers' actions for workplace injuries. The decision has changed the traditional opinion of the Supreme Court, whose Civil Chamber traditionally endorsed that such actions should be decided by Private Law courts according to Private Law principles, in stead of Labour Courts.

Keywords: Employers' Liability, Jurisdiction, Collateral Source Rule
