As the Deputy is aware the Labour Relations Commission is a statutory body independent of my Department in the performance of its functions. I am informed that the Labour Relations Commission has no record of receiving a complaint in respect of the named person. Complaints under employment rights and equality legislation which are referred to the existing workplace relations adjudication bodies such as the Rights Commissioner Service and the Equality Tribunal are heard in private and as such details of the complaints are private to the parties involved in the complaints. Therefore, it is not possible to provide any information to a third party in relation to such complaints prior to the hearing and disposal of the matter by the employment rights adjudication body.

If a party to a complaint before one of the workplace relations adjudication bodies wishes to request that the hearing of the complaint be expedited this matter should be referred directly to the appropriate body for consideration.
