employment law

Perhaps the area of law which is in sharpest focus in Ireland in recent years is the area of employment law. It governs every aspect of the employer/employee relationship from interview and recruitment through to retirement, redundancy or dismissal. At Mark Cassidy & Company we advise both employers and employees on their respective rights and responsibilities in the workplace and provide representation when things go wrong. Our services in this area include advising on:

  • Contracts of Employment.
  • Health & Safety in the Workplace.
  • Holiday Entitlements.
  • Sick Leave.
  • Maternity Leave.
  • Grievance & Disciplinary Procedures.
  • Redundancy.
  • Short Time & Lay Off.
  • Discrimination in the workplace.
  • Representation before Rights Commissioner/Employment Appeals Tribunal.
  • Representation before Equality Tribunal.
  • Preparing for/Dealing with NERA inspections.
  • Accidents in the workplace.

When problems do arise in the workplace, the situation often calls for immediate legal advice as disputes of this nature can escalate very quickly. In such circumstances we arrange an immediate appointment so as to ensure the client is equipped with the right advice to deal with whatever circumstances arise.
