LRC Release Annual Report for 2009

Posted in : Supplementary Articles ROI on 23 September 2010 Issues covered:

The Labour Relations Commission has released its annual report for 2009.

Of particular interest to our readers is the large increase in individual rights claims. The LRC's Chief Executive wrote:

"The “explosion” in the rate of employment right referrals to the Rights Commissioner Service continues apace. Over 14,000 referrals in 2009, and which on current trends is likely to exceed 16,000 in 2010. The Service is not equipped to cope with this level of referral - where every complaint must be scheduled for investigation. Most referrals are from individuals whose employment has actually ceased and where in some cases the employer concerned had ceased to trade or has closed their business."
