There is a wide range of legislation covering employment.
We can advise both employers and employees on Contracts of Employment.
A short visit to our office can clarify what area of legislation covers particular situations and help you understand your rights and options if you are experiencing difficulties. We have considerable experience with Employment Appeals Tribunals, Labour Relations Commissioners, the Labour Court and Equality Authority.
Over the past 20 years the Law regarding employment has changed considerably. Contracts of Employment are essential in all work places. They cover specifics such as: description of the particular work and duties to be performed, hours of work, pay and conditions, overtime arrangements, holidays, maternity and paternity arrangements, grievance and dispute procedures. It is important that a contract is drawn up that is specific to individual businesses and companies and to each position or job.
Other issues that commonly arise at workplaces and affect employment include:
Accidents at work
Termination of employment or unfair dismissals
Some claims can have a very short time limit of six months so it is important to contact us for advice at the earliest opportunity.
Please contact us if you would like to make an appointment.
