• INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS ACT 1990 (CODE OF PRACTICE FOR EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEES ON THE PREVENTION AND RESOLUTION OF BULLYING AT WORK) ORDER 2020

      Government of Ireland (2020)
      Foreword: The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) and the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) were requested by the Minister of State for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection to review their respective Codes of Practice on bullying in the workplace and to develop a single Joint Code, encompassing both organisations’ remit and responsibilities in this area. This Code of Practice comes into effect on 23 December 2020 and from that date it replaces the Code of Practice entitled “Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Prevention and Resolution of Bullying at Work” which was issued by the HSA in March 2007 in accordance with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and the “Code of Practice Detailing Procedures for Addressing Bullying in the Workplace” issued by the then Labour Relations Commission LRC (now WRC) in 2002 in accordance with section 42 of the Industrial Relations Act 1990. Notice of issue of this Code of Practice, and the withdrawal of both Codes of Practice, is published in the Iris Oifigiúil.
