If you forward a case to us and we assist the claimant, and it is either settled or goes to tribunal or county court, we will include it in our Decisions and Settlements review publication. This will highlight your organisation’s referral to us.
Early Conciliation Service - Labour Relations Agency
Early Conciliation is a free service provided by the Labour Relations Agency to help employers and employees to resolve disputes without having to go through a public tribunal hearing. The service is confidential, impartial and there is no charge.
From Monday 27 January 2020, if you are considering making a complaint of discrimination at work, you MUST register your complaint with the Labour Relations Agency before you can lodge proceedings with the Office of the Industrial Tribunal and Fair Employment Tribunal.
- Remember - there are strict time limits for taking a case of discrimination. Complaints on employment issues must be made to the Tribunal within 3 months of the discriminatory act and complaints on service provision must be made to the County Court within 6 months.
Further information on discrimination is available from the following sections of our website:
