Alternative Dispute Resolution In Employment - 2009

Alternative Dispute Resolution In Employment - 2009

The Employment Act 2008 followed an independent review of employment dispute resolution in the UK and a public consultation in GB. The Employment Act 2008 repeals employment law and regulations in the UK. As employment is a devolved matter this gives Northern Ireland the opportunity to tailor an employment
dispute resolution structure that is tailored to suit local needs. This paper examines developments in GB and the review currently being conducted by the Department for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland. Early resolution of disputes within the workplace is acknowledged as a favoured alternative to costly tribunals and this Research Paper examines models for alternative dispute resolution in the workplace.

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.
