Employment law has become increasingly complex over the past number of years and there are over 30 pieces of major employment legislation in Ireland. The need for organisations to ensure compliance with legislation is greater than ever, as the level of claims, inspections and fines are increasing each year. These significant increases in employment legislation, is posing major challenges for employers.
It is your responsibility as an owner-manager to ensure your employees receive certain basic employment rights. Failure to comply is both costly and time consuming. The Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) is able to impose on-the spot fines and can also publish the outcomes of cases of public interest and identify employers who have breached a labour law. Given the increased likelihood of a WRC inspection, employment law compliance should now become a key priority for you.
