Employment Law

Employment Law is an area of law which is continuously expanding. The relationship between employee and employer becomes more complex all the time, as does the legal framework that governs it. Irish employment law is fundamentally contract based with the idea that an employer and employee enter into a contractual relationship on agreed terms, set out in the terms and conditions of employment.

The workplace can be a stressful environment for both employer and employee. It is essential that both employer and employee understand their respective rights and duties and that there are clear policies and procedures in place to deal with the issues that arise in the workplace.

Areas covered by Gerard Cochrane & Co. Solicitors include:

  • Disciplinary and grievance procedure
  • Redundancy, rationalisation and reorganisation
  • Industrial relations
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Termination of employment
  • Dismissal/unfair dismissal/constructive dismissal/wrongful dismissal
