Labour Relations Agency events throughout January to inform employers on how Early Conciliation will work once it comes into force on 27 January 2020

Early Conciliation is a new service to help resolve workplace disputes that comes into effect from Monday 27 January 2020.

From this date, anyone who wishes to lodge a claim with the Industrial or Fair Employment Tribunal must first notify the Labour Relations Agency (LRA) and discuss the option of Early Conciliation. Potential claimants will not be able to proceed to tribunal without at least considering this option.
