Individual Conciliation

  • Pat Lowry


We may not all know precisely what they are but each and every one of us in civil employment enjoys a number of rights. Some of these rights may derive from terms which we have personally agreed with our employer or which have been negotiated through collective bargaining carried out by a trade union acting on our behalf; some rights derive from the common law; others are statutory employment rights laid down in various Acts of Parliament. If we think that our employer is failing to observe one of our employment rights we can seek redress in one of a number of ways, for example, through the grievance procedure which should be available to us or to our trade union; through the county or sheriff courts; and in the case of most breaches of our statutory employment rights, to bodies called industrial tribunals.
