Employment Act (Northern Ireland) 2016

Assessment of Matters Relating to Tribunal Proceedings

Section 8: Assessment of matters relating to tribunal proceedings

Section 8 empowers the Department to make regulations which allow parties to be given an assessment concerning industrial tribunal or Fair Employment Tribunal proceedings which have been or could be instituted. The regulations may make provision about who will deliver the service, to whom it may be delivered and the matters which may be considered.

The objective is to enable those facing an employment dispute to receive a non-legally binding indication of where they stand in relation to the dispute, to assist them in arriving at a better informed decision about how to proceed.
