(This note is not part of the Order)
Under Article 84A(1)(b) of the Industrial Relations (Northern Ireland) Order 1992, the Department for Employment and Learning is empowered to specify statutory provisions in respect of which the Labour Relations Agency may prepare an arbitration scheme for dealing with disputes which are or could become the subject of industrial tribunal proceedings.
This Order utilises that power, listing in the Schedule a range of employment rights jurisdictions in respect of which the Agency may prepare a scheme.
The Department has not prepared a specific impact assessment in respect of this Order. The impact of revised arbitration arrangements has already been assessed in connection with the Department’s review of systems for resolving disputes arising in the workplace. For more information, visit www.delni.gov.uk or contact the Department.
