As part of its programme of promoting good employment practice and preventing disputes arising in the workplace, the Labour Relations Agency hosts a series of seminars and workshops led by experienced Agency staff. The seminars/workshops are designed to raise awareness of the provisions of legislation and to promote and develop good practice in the relevant area. The subjects covered reflect the Agency's experience in dealing with employment disputes through its advisory and dispute resolution services.
These events are held in the Agency's premises in either Belfast or Londonderry. There is no charge for attendance at any of these sessions.
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.
