Workplace Relations Commission

The Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) is an independent, statutory body which was established on 1st October 2015 under the Workplace Relations Act 2015 (No. 16 of 2015).

It assumes the roles and functions previously carried out by the National Employment Rights Authority (NERA), Equality Tribunal (ET), Labour Relations Commission (LRC), Rights Commissioners Service (RCS), and the first-instance (Complaints and Referrals) functions of the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT).

The WRC provides information to employees and employers through its information unit, monitors employment conditions through its inspection services and can enforce compliance and seek redress.

The WRC has a range of responsibilities around the maintenance of good workplace relations.

Workplace Relations Commission Inspectors visit places of employment and carry out investigations in order to ensure compliance with employment-related legislation. Such investigations involve, but are not confined to, examining books, records and documents related to the employment, and conducting interviews with current and former employees and employers.

In 2016, 4,830 workplace inspections were carried out on a range of Irish business. Of these inspections, 2,877 (60%) were unannounced.
