Employment Regulation Orders and Registered Employment Agreement System in Need of Radical Overhaul
The Report of the Independent Review of Employment Regulation Orders (EROs) and Registered Employment Agreement Wage Setting Mechanisms (REAs) was published on 24 May 2011. The Report concluded that the basic framework of the current JLC/REA regulatory system should be retained, but that the system is in need of a radical overhaul to make it more responsive to the changing economic and labour market conditions.
The Report, which was commissioned by the Government in relation to The National Recovery Plan, 2011 to 2014, made the following recommendations:-
Following the publication of the Report, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise, and Innovation, Richard Burton TD, announced that a Government action plan for reform would be announced before the end of June 2011.
The Government action plan will consist of reform proposals arising from the recommendations and issues raised within the Report as well as from input from relevant stakeholders.

The various agreements on pay and conditions made by Joint Labour Committees (JLCs) are known as Employment Regulation Orders (EROs).
 Agreements which result from negotiations between trade unions and employers are called Collective Agreements. If a Collective Agreement has been registered with the Labour Court it is known as a Registered Employment Agreement (REA).
