Employment

Employment law is a complex area which impacts on all businesses employing staff and also all individuals undertaking work. It is difficult and time-consuming for a business owner or individual to keep pace with every aspect , so good legal advice can minimise potentially costly problems.

In fact our advice often helps both employer and staff win when employment issues arise. 

We concentrate on practical and effective dispute resolution in personal grievance and employment disputes. If you are unable to resolve problems, we will work with you to resolve issues through mediation, the Employment Relations Authority and the Courts.

Our aim is to resolve issues by achieving the most favourable outcome sought, with the least cost possible, both in terms of your time and actual expense. That means you can focus on your business and personal life, not legal issues.

We can also help from the start of your employment relationship. We assist with drafting and advising on effective individual employment agreements, or other contracts that may be appropriate for your particular working relationship.

Our expertise includes:

  • Employment disputes and personal grievances
  • Drafting and review of collective and individual employment agreements
  • Health & Safety issues, including defence of prosecutions
  • Holiday entitlements and provisions
  • Issues arising from the sale and purchase of businesses
  • Legislative compliance
  • Privacy
  • Redundancy
