Welcome to the Western Australian Industrial Relations Commission 

 We are an independent quasi-judicial tribunal established under the Industrial Relations Act 1979 to deal with industrial matters in the State of Western Australia by conciliation or, if necessary, arbitration. Our main objectives are to prevent and settle industrial disputes.

The WAIRC will deal with an application providing it has the jurisdiction or power to do so.   Click here for more information about who can apply to the WAIRC.
