Workplace Relations Commission to open a hearing venue in Monaghan

The Workplace Relations Commission is to open a hearing venue in Monaghan.

The move is part of an expansion by the organisation which will see five new hearing venues opened around the country, in a response to feedback from stakeholders.

15,000 complaints were processed by the WRC last year, with 75 per cent being heard within five months.

In a statement to Northern Sound News, the Department of Enterprise says it’ll work with the OPW to identify public buildings which could be used to hold hearings but it will work with “suitible hotels” if this option isn’t feasible.
