Why do I need to learn about employment law as an employer?

It is now more important than ever to ensure compliance with employment legislation. Over the past number of years, key pieces of legislation have been introduced in Ireland in the areas of work permits, family leave, the right to request remote working, and more recently probationary periods. All current and new legislation governs our work landscapes and it is our responsibility to ensure we are up to date with employment legislation.  

Employment legislation governs an organisation’s policies and procedures, and the best practice is to ensure these policies are updated and reflect ongoing legislative changes.
