Killymeal House, Office of the Industrial Tribunals and Fair Employment Tribunal

We are a group of lawyers representing the interests of employment lawyers in Northern Ireland.

Our objectives are: –

  • To provide education and training
  • To organise meetings and conferences to offer a forum to discuss and debate employment law
  • To develop links with other organisations and associations in employment law and related matters
  • To act as a consultative body on employment law, practice and procedure

To learn more about our organisation see our constitution.

The ELGNI has been in existence for almost 30 years, and is an association of almost 100 lawyers from both branches of the legal profession encompassing specialist employment lawyers and those with a more occasional engagement in the area of employment law. Our membership includes those whose client bases are both employee (or ‘Claimant’) and employer (or ‘Respondent’) oriented and we attempt to provide an open and helpful platform for discussion and development in line with our objectives. Most of our focus is with areas falling within the jurisdiction of the Industrial Tribunals and Fair Employment Tribunal in Northern Ireland, however, we also educate, discuss and respond to issues in the wider employment law jurisdiction, including matters falling within the jurisdiction of the County Court, High Court, Northern Ireland Court of Appeal, and extra-jurisdictional issues and developments that affect Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.
