Labour Relations Agency Public Meeting to Explore Link Between Good Employment Relations and a Strong Economy
The link between harmonious, productive workplaces and a thriving economy is the theme of the Labour Relations Agency’s annual public meeting on Thursday 25 October in Belfast’s Radisson Blu Hotel at 11.30am.
This briefing is intended to give participants an overview of the main differences between employment law in Northern Ireland as compared with Great Britain. Employment law is a devolved matter in Northern Ireland and in recent years reforms that have occurred in GB have not been replicated in NI thus creating several distinct differences in core areas of employment law such as unfair dismissal and the law as it relates to trade unions and industrial action. Some areas of employment law may possibly be reformed in 2018 and this briefing will also touch upon these areas.
