The Employment Relations (Jersey) Law 2007 came into force on 21 January 2008. The associated codes of practice came into force (by Order) on 15 February 2008.
The main aims of the law are to:
- provide a system of legal identification, registration of trade unions, employer associations, and to give these bodies legal status
- create a legal dispute resolution process which supports good industrial relations, with the aim of reducing disputes and helping to resolve disputes early, using the Employment Tribunal where necessary
- support codes of practice to describe good and reasonable employment relations practice
For more information, see the Jersey Advisory and Conciliation Service (JACS) website.
You can contact the employment relations registrar to register trade unions and employer's associations in accordance with the law.
