Consultation on extending employment law changes to Northern Ireland

Close date: 20 July 2012

The consultation sets out recent and proposed changes to employment law in Great Britain and seeks to determine whether or not they would be appropriate in Northern Ireland. The changes under review are grouped under three headings: the proposals for early resolution of workplace disputes, for example the "rapid resolution" scheme; efficient and effective employment tribunals, for example increasing the maximum amount of a costs order; and better regulation measures, for example the introduction of "protected conversations".
