As of 1st October 2015, the Workplace Relations Commission has been the first port of call for employment claims.  The Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) subsumed the 5 previous bodies (Labour Relations Commission, National Employment Rights Authority, the Equality Tribunal, Employment Appeals Tribunal and the Labour Court) into one.   This structure was intended to provide a more streamlined service and be less arduous for both employers and employees alike.  Further information on how this system works is available in the ISME Members Area.
