An excellent website on Irish Employment Law

In these difficult times, employment law can be a minefield for employers to negotiate. Similarly, employees can often find it difficult to find accurate, relevant and up-to-date information on their entitlements.  These complications can cause confusion and conflict in the workplace.

NERA, the  National Employment Rights Authority,  have set up a new website which helps both employers and their staff to resolve these questions.

The site includes extensive guidelines on issues such as the following:

  • Holidays and Public Holiday entitlements,
  • Compassionate Leave,
  • Part-Time / Fixed Term Workers,
  • Minimum Notice,
  • National Minimum Wage,
  • Pay & Wages Records,
  • Redundancy,
  • Sick Leave,
  • Starting a New Business,
  • Terms of Employment,
  • Transfer of Undertakings ,
  • Unfair Dismissals,
  • Working Hours

In addition, the website outlines the specific arrangements and regulations applying to particular industry sectors, including

  • Agriculture
  • Hotels & Catering
  • Construction,
  • Contract Cleaning,
  • Drapery & Textiles
  • Electrical Contracting
  • Hairdressing
  • Mushroom industry
  • Printing
  • Milling
  • Retail Grocery
  • Security Industry

The website presents this information in seperate sections for employees and for employers. In general the facts are outlined clearly, simply and concisely.

This site is a fantastic resource and is essential reading both for employers in Ireland and their staff.  Well done to NERA.
