Employers Association

An employers association is designed to provide services to Employers to enable them to effectively regulate the employment relationship with their employees or their trade union representatives.  The Trade Union and Labour Relations (Northern Ireland) Order 1992 defines an Employers Association as an organisation which either:

  • is made up of employers or individual owners whose principal purposes include the regulation of relations between employers and workers or trade unions; or
  • is made up of constituent or affiliated organisations, or representatives of those organisations, whose principle purposes include the regulation of relations between employers and workers or trade unions, or the regulation of relations between its constituent or affiliated organisations.

  • No.8 Federations, associations and other organisations of employers
  • Telephone Enquiry Point

    The Agency’s Enquiry Point is available to employers, employees, trade unions and others. Enquiry Point advisors provide information and advice on a wide range of employment matters. The Enquiry Point is also an important contact point for identifying circumstances, or clients, who would benefit from being referred to other Agency services.

    The Enquiry Point provides clear, confidential, independent and impartial advice to assist the caller in resolving issues in the workplace.

    While the advisors cannot provide a legal opinion they can help callers gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities as well as identifying possible options to help resolve their issues.
