Workplace Relations Notices - COVID-19 Update

Mindful of the current Government level 5 restrictions, the WRC will continue to offer remote/virtual Adjudication Hearings, Conciliation Meetings and Mediations for the immediate future.

In terms of adjudication hearings, remote hearings will be offered pursuant to section 31 Civil Law and Criminal Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2020. Should an issue be raised in relation to fair procedure during the course of a virtual hearing the Adjudication Officer will take whatever steps they deem necessary, including adjourning to a physical hearing at a later date.   

Please note that virtual services already scheduled are unaffected, as are WRC inspections and the WRC Infoline: 1890 80 80 90

Administrative arrangements are in place so that physical post and documentation will be processed daily in WRC locations.

However, WRC would also encourage people to utilise electronic mail as a communication vehicle wherever possible to assist in general administration efficiencies.  The email address is submissions@workplacerelations.ie

Where a hearing has already been scheduled any further correspondence or submissions should be emailed to pru@workplacerelations.ie.
