Employment Law: Rights, Investigations, Disputes and Redress
Employment law is a critical part of business and has become increasingly complex in recent years. The employer/employee relationship in Ireland is heavily regulated by contract law, judicial precedent, domestic legislation and European Union directives, each conferring different rights and obligations on employers and employees alike.
This one-day employment law course is designed to equip delegates with a comprehensive understanding of the key aspects of employment law and the recurring issues within the employer/employee relationship. It probes sources of Irish employment law, identifies the key players involved and discusses the various rights, duties and obligations arising within the contract of employment. The training also focuses on areas of conflict, in particular; issues surrounding bullying and harassment, equal treatment and termination of employment. Finally, the course reviews the key changes to the employment landscape, educates on relevant legislation and provides awareness of what is happening in the different dispute resolution forums. The legal training is highly practical with a number of activities and case studies used during the programme.
