Industrial Tribunal

The Industrial Tribunal is an independent juridical tribunal on matters relating to employment relations.  It is regulated by the Employment and Industrial Relations Act and has exclusive jurisdiction to consider and decide all cases of alleged unfair dismissal, in addition to other cases associated with employment such as breach of the law with regard to provisions such as overtime, parental and maternity leave.
The decisions of the industrial tribunal are not subject to appeal, except on points of law.  In addition, its awards are binding and cannot be revised prior to the elapsing of at least one year after the issue of any such award.
In some cases, other instruments are sought, such as the general law courts, to settle matters in which the law was allegedly violated at the place of work.
