Industrial Relations Victoria (IRV) is the Government’s lead agency for developing industrial relations policy and initiatives in Victoria.
IRV consults with Victoria's private sector on industrial relations matters. It leads Government participation in workplace-related reviews and inquiries. It also supports the Government's contribution towards maintaining Australia's national industrial relations system.
The IRV public sector unit oversees enterprise bargaining across the Victorian public sector and provides specialised industrial relations advice to Government.
IRV sits within the Department of Premier and Cabinet. Its portfolio includes three statutory independent bodies: the Labour Hire Authority, the Portable Long Service Authority and Wage Inspectorate Victoria.
