Workplace Relations Act 2015

69.

Liability for loss occurring before dissolution day

69. (1) A claim in respect of any loss or injury alleged to have been suffered by any person arising out of the performance before the dissolution day of any of the functions of the Employment Appeals Tribunal shall after that day, lie against the Labour Court and not against the Employment Appeals Tribunal.

(2) Any legal proceedings pending immediately before the dissolution day to which the Employment Appeals Tribunal is a party, shall be continued, with the substitution in the proceedings of the Labour Court for the Employment Appeals Tribunal.

(3) Where, before the dissolution day, agreement has been reached between the parties concerned in settlement of a claim to which subsection (1) relates, the terms of which have not been implemented, or judgment in such a claim has been given in favour of a person but has not been enforced, the terms of the agreement or judgment, as the case may be, shall, in so far as they are enforceable against the Employment Appeals Tribunal, be enforceable against the Labour Court and not the Employment Appeals Tribunal.

(4) Any claim made or proper to be made by the Employment Appeals Tribunal in respect of any loss or injury arising from the act or default of any person before the dissolution day shall be regarded as having been made by or proper to be made by the Labour Court and may be pursued and sued for by the Labour Court as if the loss or injury had been suffered by the Labour Court.
