Words you may need to know

 

Industrial Relations -  the working relations between employers' organisations and trade unions

Model on – to design like

 

The Minister for Social Security is responsible for any changes in employment law, and for providing a service to the public to give advice and carry out conciliation in employment matters.

In March 1999 the States agreed to set up an advisory and conciliation service to be known as the Jersey Advisory and Conciliation Service (JACS) which was modelled on the UK service ACAS.

JACS was to be supported by an Employment Tribunal Service and a consultative body to be known as the Employment Forum. Nearly all claims of an employment dispute will be heard through the JACS system and the Tribunal Service.
