Employment Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Section 2: Statutory dispute resolution procedures: effect on contracts of employment

20.Section 2 repeals Article 16 of the 2003 Order, which implies in every contract of employment a duty to observe the statutory dispute resolution procedures subject to regulations made by the Department about the application of those procedures. Neither the Article nor the corresponding provision in Great Britain (section 30 of the Employment Act 2002, now repealed) was ever commenced in full, and no regulations were made under this provision. The Department has no plans to utilise this provision.
