The Labour Relations Agency publishes guide on Effective Joint Committees

Whether your engagement with employee representatives involves negotiation, consultation or information sharing all involved need to be clear about their roles, rights and responsibilities. These should be recorded in an agreed constitution establishing the joint committee.

To be effective these joint committees need to operate successfully and produce positive outcomes. In many instances effective joint committees can result in many issues being resolved informally, without the need to invoke formal procedures

Are your existing joint arrangements effective?  To test their effectiveness use the self-assessment questionnaire, contained in this guide, and identify any areas for improvement.

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.
