Before any issue is taken anywhere you should be aware of the Code of Practice on Dispute Resolution (SI 146/2000). This is incorporated in most ‘Grievance & Disciplinary’ procedures and places various demands on both sides to process disputes at the level of the workplace FIRST, and this is in any event desirable.
Also note that these institutions are under review and legislation is expected to be published in the first half of 2013 which will dramatically affect the institutions below.
The Labour Relations Commission (LRC) www.lrc.ie/The Rights Commissioner (Also on LRC site)
The Employment Appeals Tribunal www.eatribunal.ie/
The Equality procedures www.equalitytribunal.ie/
The Labour Court www.labourcourt.ie/
Private Arbitration/adjudication & Mediation See main page
And see my blog! BIG changes in how these institutions do their work are under consideration at the moment! See my blog for some of my ideas
