Employment Law

The law relating to employment can be extremely complex for both the Employer and the Employee. We provide advice to Employers on how to avoid legal disputes by implementing Employment Law best practices including the drafting of policies and contracts.

For the Employee we provide sensitive and practical advice on all matters concerning their employment situation. In particular we provide advice on the following matters:

  • Bullying and harassment
  • Unfair dismissals
  • Constructive dismissal
  • Employment equality
  • Redundancy entitlements
  • Employment contracts
  • Pension benefits
  • The termination of employment contracts
  • Restraint of trade agreements
  • Severance agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Maternity leave
  • Immigration and work permits
  • Discrimination in the workplace
  • Taxation

    Representation before the following employment law forums:

    • The Circuit Court
    • High Court
    • Rights Commissioner
    • Labour Court
    • The Employment Appeals Tribunal
    • The Equality Tribunal

As an employee we know there is nothing more distressing or upsetting than being made redundant or being unfairly dismissed from your Job. Employment law in Ireland provides strong protection for employees who feel their rights have been breached.

If we feel that we can assist you and you have a case we will of course represent you before the Employment Appeals Tribunal or any Court where appropriate.

Employees in Ireland are entitled to receive certain basic employment rights. These rights are governed by a range of detailed employment legislation.

It should be noted that in some industries employees are entitled to additional rights which we can advise on.
