45. Reciprocal enforcement
(1) Subject to subsection (2), where a reciprocating authority makes an order against a person similar in kind to an order which the Board has power to make under this Act or the State Administrative Tribunal has power to make in the exercise of jurisdiction conferred on it by this Act the Board may, without further inquiry, make a like order to take effect in the State for a period not extending beyond the period of the order made by the reciprocating authority.
(2) For the purposes of subsection (1) the Board may inquire of a reciprocating authority as to the circumstances giving rise to a finding made against a person and may accept the report of the reciprocating authority as to the truth of those circumstances on being satisfied that the person against whom the finding was made had been given an opportunity to make representations in respect of the matter and had failed to satisfy the reciprocating authority thereon.
