SECTION 20(1), INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS ACT, 1969
- AND -
Chairman: Mr Geraghty
Employer Member: Ms Connolly
Worker Member: Mr McCarthy
1. Appeal Of Adjudication Officer Decision No. ADJ-00021036.
2. The case concerns the Worker's complaint under the Company's Dignity at Work Policy in respect of alleged bullying by one of his supervisors.
On the 27th May 2019, the Worker referred the dispute to the Labour Court in accordance with Section 20(1) of the Industrial Relations Act, 1969 and agreed to be bound by the Court's Recommendation.
A Labour Court hearing took place on the 26th July 2019.
At the Court hearing, the Employer agreed readily to operate its procedures to deal with allegations of bullying and the Court recommends that they do so.
Indeed, the Court notes that the Employer agreed to commence the operation of its procedures even in advance of this Recommendation being received by them.
The Court notes also that the Employer had stated a willingness to operate its procedures without any requirement for this to be recommended by the Court but they stated that they had been unable to do so due to the unwillingness of the Worker to co-operate. The Court recommends full co-operation by both parties with the Employer’s procedures.
Signed on behalf of the Labour Court

Enquiries concerning this Recommendation should be addressed to Therese Hickey, Court Secretary.
