Employment Law cover


This practical guide to Irish employment law brings together the knowledge and expertise of Ireland's leading employment, tax and pensions law practitioners.

In-depth and accessible, it gives a comprehensive and clear review of all aspects of employment and labour law. This is the second edition of Employment Law, which has been newly updated and revised to include the extensive changes to the law, including in relation to the workings of the Workplace Relations Commission, and new chapters on whistle blowing, health and safety, mediation, agency workers, restraint of trade and injunctions. These build on the book's established chapters on the wide ranging facets of employment law, such as the employment relationship, Immigration and cross-border issues, and trade unions and industrial relations.

Ideal for legal practitioners, employers and human resource specialists: with a copy on your bookshelf, accurate, detailed information on the law on all aspects of employment and labour law will always be close to hand. Your firm and clients will benefit from the technical pointers, tips and know-how to ensure complete legal compliance.
