Peremptory Rule Law and Legal Definition

Peremptory rule is a court order that must be obeyed without an opportunity to respond. Such orders does not allow objections may be lodged or arguments to be made. It also refers to a mandatory legal rule which cannot be departed from by agreement. In the labor law, peremptory statutory provisions are used as the means of implementing employee protection. However, mandatory rules often operate purely as minimum standards, meaning that more favorable terms and conditions can be agreed on to the benefit of the employee.
