On 15 December 2018, the Moroccan NCP received a specific instance from a trade union, the Democratic Confederation of Labour, alleging that a Moroccan company operating in the automotive sector in Morocco did not observe the employment industrial relations chapter of the Guidelines. The trade union is representing former workers who were dismissed after joining a trade union.

The NCP has contacted and met with both parties, and after its initial assessment, the NCP has decided that the specific instance merits further examination. The NCP will invite the parties to participate in a mediation process.
