6 Month Time Limits in Employment Cases-How to Get an Extension of Time

If you want to bring a claim for unfair dismissal or non-payment of wages or payment of annual leave or any other breach of your employment rights you must bring your claim within 6 months of the contravention.

But the WRC and the Labour Court have discretion to extend this time to 12 months if 'reasonable cause’ is shown.

Most of the employment law acts such as the Unfair Dismissals act 1977 or the Organisation of Working Time act 1997 acts will state something like the following,

(4) A rights commissioner shall not entertain a complaint under this paragraph if it is presented to him or her after the expiration of the period of 6 months beginning on the date of the contravention to which the complaint relates.

(5) Notwithstanding subparagraph (4), a rights commissioner may entertain a complaint under this paragraph presented to him or her after the expiration of the period referred to in subparagraph (4) (but not later than 12 months after such expiration) if he or she is satisfied that the failure to present the complaint within that period was due to reasonable cause.
