The National Employment Rights Authority (NERA) was established on an interim basis by the Government in February 2007 on foot of a commitment in the most recent social partnership agreement, Towards 2016. NERA aims to secure compliance with employment rights legislation and to foster a culture of compliance in Ireland through five main functions: * Information * Inspection * Enforcement * Prosecution * Protection of Young Persons. NERA is an office of the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and has its headquarters in Carlow, with regional offices in Cork, Dublin, Shannon and Sligo. Ger Deering is the Director of NERA, and he is supported in his role by NERA's Management Team and the staff of the five functions.
