Employment Rights Hearings
Members of the public, including members of the media, are permitted to attend Labour Court hearings under the various employment rights statutes. The Court publishes on its website a list of all employment rights matters to be heard the following week. Should you wish to attend a hearing in Lansdowne House, please submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org When attending a hearing, please enter through the Northumberland Road entrance and sign in at reception.
There are a number of employment rights matters being heard remotely in virtual courtrooms, which members of the public, including members of the media, may be permitted to attend and observe. Should you wish to attend a listed hearing designated as a remote hearing in a virtual courtroom, please submit a request to email@example.com
Industrial Relations Hearings
All Labour Court hearings convened under the Industrial Relations Acts, whether in a physical in-person courtroom or in a virtual courtroom, are private sittings. Attendance is confined to the parties to the hearing, their representatives and other essential attendees. Members of the public, including members of the media, are therefore not permitted to attend hearings under the Industrial Relations Acts.
