There are now c. 40 employment laws, statutory instruments, and codes of practice governing employment in Ireland.
There are also a myriad of state bodies covering the area of employment law including NERA, the Equality Authority, the Equality Tribunal, the Labour Court, the Rights Commissioners, the Employment Appeals Trobunal, the Labour Relations Commission, and so on.
The complexity of the legislation and statutory instruments, combined with the myriad of government agencies dealing with this area, have made it increasingly difficult for employers to be expert and knowledgeable in this area.
Employees have increasing access to employment law information through the internet and free services such as Citizens Information, NERA and legal aid.
This means that employers must be ever more alert to ensuring they are fully complying with all employment legislation and they have access to expertise for handling key issues such as contracts, disciplinary, redundancy, restructuring, dismissal, and so on.
