Modifications (not altering text):
Declared unconstitutional: Industrial Relations Act 1946 (26/1946), ss. 42, 43 and 45 and Industrial Relations Act 1990 (19/1990), s. 48 provide for the making of employment regulation orders. These provisions and employment regulation orders made under them were declared unconstitutional (7.07.2011) in John Grace Fried Chicken Ltd and Others v Catering Joint Labour Committee and Others  IEHC 277. The Industrial Relations (Amendment) Act 2012 (32/2012) was enacted in response to this decision.
