Surge in employment rights cases - The Irish Times - Thu, Sep 23, 2010

The recession has seen a surge in the number employment rights cases being referred to the Labour Relations Commission (LRC).

Chief executive Kieran Mulvey said today the commission’s conciliation service was seeing “an explosion” in cases relating to pay restructuring and redundancy disputes.

Speaking after the publication of the LRC’s annual report for 2009, Mr Mulvey warned the commission’s caseload was likely to exceed 16,000 this year.

The commission's report showed the commission received 14,569 referrals last year, a 33 per cent increase on 2008 and the highest level of referrals to date.
This can't be good for attracting employers into the market.
