Workplace Relations Legislation

The Workplace Relations Act 2015 was enacted on 1st October 2015. The Act substantially amended the primary employment and industrial relations legislation, providing the legal basis for the WRC and its simplified, more accessible processes

The Act enables the WRC to undertake a full range of functions formerly carried out by the Labour Relations Commission (LRC), including the Rights Commissioner Service, the Equality Tribunal, the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) and the National Employment Rights Authority (NERA).

The Workplace Relations Act also provides for the Labour Court to be the appellate body to determine, among other matters, appeals against decisions of WRC Adjudication Officers.

The list below provides links to the primary Workplace Relations Act, a number of related Statutory Instruments, and access to a Consolidated version of the Act (produced by the Law Reform Commission):
