Employment Law

Your Employment Contract

handshakeThis increasingly important area of law, to employees has become extremely complex since the first raft of modern Employment/Labour Law was introduced in this legal jurisdiction in the 1970s. Currently, and as a result of the intervention of the Legislature, the decisions of Rights Commissioners, the Labour Court, the Employment Appeals Tribunal and the Courts, the modern employer-employee relationship is both complex and highly regulated. In addition new legislation is constantly being introduced both at National and EU levels.
