Israel Football Association’s Referee Pensions Case


FBC&Co represented the Israel Football Association in a collective action submitted by the workers’ organization The National Labor Federation, in connection with pension mone.

The claim was estimated at tens of millions of shekels.

The Regional Labor Court in Tel Aviv denied the action, accepting the Football Association argument that the base salaries of the referees were adjusted due to a change in their employment status in 2008, while no unlawful deductions were made.

The FBC&Co team included Shay Teken (Picture), Amit Pines, Amit Bechler and Avishay Efergan.
