During NMD Enterprise Week 2021, Newry Mourne and Down District Council has teamed up with the Labour Relations Agency, to highlight the range of services provided to local Employers and to learn more about the contribution the Labour Relations Agency can make in helping them develop and grow their business.
Central to the work of the Labour Relations Agency is its work to help improve employment relations in Northern Ireland by providing workplace advisory & dispute resolution services. All the services are free, impartial and confidential. The Agency regularly deliver workshops and seminars helping businesses keep up to date with changes in NI employment law and emerging best practice. They also provide ongoing, personalised support to ensure your employment policies and procedures are not only legally compliant but reflect the specific needs of your business.
As part of NMD Enterprise Week 2021, the Agency has released two online information sessions aimed at helping to engage and support businesses from right across the Newry Mourne and Down District Council area. The online sessions cover the following topics: –
