Hearings at the St Catherine Resident Magistrate's Court have been suspended today as several administrative workers are on strike.
The workers are upset about what they call poor working conditions and inadequate equipment, such as photocopying machines.
This morning, only one Clerk of Court was seen on duty.
"We are concerned about the lack of air condition or even space to work," one employee said.
There are also complaints about frequent water shortages and the inconvenience for people using the restrooms.
As a result of the protest, a notice has been posted advising that there will be no court session today.
It is not clear when matters slated to have been heard today will next be called up.
