Industrial Court Renamed to ELRC

I thought this will be of importance to us.

With effect from last year, the Industrial Court of Kenya has since been renamed to Employment and Labour Relations Court of Kenya (ELRC)

The name change is welcome as it represents the full spectrum of the Court's mandate. The court not only intervenes in an employer-employee relationship, but it also intervenes between Trade Unions and employers or employers organisations.
