The Employment Relations Authority

  • Do you have an employment problem in your workplace?
  • Are you an employee in a dispute with your boss?
  • Are you an employer or manager having trouble with staff?
  • Do you need help to resolve the issue?

The Employment Relations Authority is an independent body set up under the Employment Relations Act 2000. Its role is to resolve employment relationship problems by looking into the facts and making a decision based on the merits of the case, not on technicalities.
