What is Employment Law?

Over the past few years in Ireland, Employment Law has become increasingly complex and important to Irish Business's and to Irish Employees.


But what is Employment Law?

Employment Law is a board area of Law that deals with the complex area of the relationship between Employers and Employees. This then means that if an Irish business has even 1 employee then they will have to be compliant with Irish Employment Law. Irish Employment Law is made of both Irish Legislation and EU directives. The aim of these Laws is to protect both the business and employee's. Irish Employment Law covers the following:

  • Employee discrimination
  • Labor relations
  • Statutory Leave
  • Employee benefits (such as medical insurance and bonus's)
  • Social Welfare
  • Unfair Dismissal
  • Health and Safety in the Work Place
  • Minimum wage
  • Disciplinary Procedures

For most business owners, it's just not possible to comfortably know enough about employment law. Instead, a smart business owner will recongise that employment is a vast subject and hire in a specialist or an Employment Law Consultancy Business such as Athrú Solutions.
