Employment Law Database

Notification - 21 May 2018

This Database is about to be upgraded. As part of this process, we will not be uploading determinations from 21st May to 10th September. Once complete, any determinations not loaded during this period will be added. Contact us if you require a copy of a recent determination.

Search here to identify cases from the Employment Relations Authority (ERA), Employment Court and related jurisdictions since 1976. Determinations of the ERA since 2005 are available to download here unless a publication restriction applies. Judgments of other jurisdictions may be available from the Employment Court or Judicial Decisions Online.
