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 www.employmentrights.ie 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,
- 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
- Hotels & Catering
- Contract Cleaning,
- Drapery & Textiles
- Electrical Contracting
- Mushroom industry
- 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.
