Employment Law Questions/Advice Service-Save Time and Money

I can help.

I’m a solicitor with my own solicitor’s practice and I specialize in employment law.

In fact, I have written some books about employment law in Ireland.

Employment Law In Ireland-New Cover-25027-employment-law-cases

I have this “employment law service”. It has arisen because a huge number of people were contacting me on a regular basis.

These people had various issues at work, and were not sure where thet stood, or what they could do about their problem, if anything.

So, I started this service which aims to help you by clearing away the fog of confusion you might have surrounding your rights.

It can save lot of money, time and heartache by letting you know where you stand. By just making things clearer, and giving you some peace of mind.

So that you can then make a smart, well informed decision about bringing a claim against your employer. Or even just to go to the boss and stand up for yourself, armed with the right information.

Or just put the issue behind you, clear in the knowledge that there is no breach of your rights.

As a former shop steward I found your website and YouTube channel extremely informative. The information you provide help me to get 28 grand from my former bully employer. Without going to court or Work Relations commission  I signed a waiver agreement and got my compensation. It unbelievable how many undereducated HR managers work for companies and making own and employees life hard. I  believe it worth to look your website and YouTube channel for bought employees and employers.

I am so grateful to Terry Gorry. Terry’s service is uniquely efficient, accessible and affordable, he is very generous with his time and his thorough knowledge, his decisiveness is a breathe of fresh air. When I recently found myself in a sea of legal problems that I couldn’t have imagined could occur when I had thought I was doing things right, Terry Gorry’s sound advice was just what I needed when I lacked any sort of clarity myself due to the stess of it all. I would highly recommend him. Through his email service he opens up the world of legal intricacies to share, so we can all do what is right rather than learn what we did wrong when it is too late. Unfortunately I met him when it was too late. If you are new to being an employer seek advice.

Terry was very helpful and knew what he was talking about. He ensured to get a full account of my story, so that he could help me to the best of his abilities. He showed real interest in my case right from the beginning. He was always there to answer any questions I had, even after working hours.

Terry always responds quickly to requests; gives his views in a clear and straightforward manner and then sends on the documentation that supports his legal argument.

I have no hesitation in recommending Terry as an effective legal support agent in the area of Employment Law.

I left things ’till it was too late and just wished I meet Terry earlier: I would not have had a big settlement with an employee!
Now I’m 100% compliant with Employment Rights and fear nothing!

Thank you again

Dear Terry,

Than you very much for your help. I was successful in getting a more beneficial settlement for myself and my coworkers.
It is clear for us now, last time he was just tried to threaten me in to accepting his conditions. What is a shame. ?
But luckily based on your advice we can close this case forever now. (The papers also contains an assurement there no further legal actions will be taken against me or any of my coworkers)
Thank’s a million. I’m sure I will happily recommend you to others in the future.

Reduce stress, obtain peace of mind, and assert your employment rights

Look, let’s be honest: if you have a problem at work it can have a serious impact on your health and well being.

On your family, on relationships, on all aspects of your daily life.

The sick feeling in the pit of your stomach as you go into work every morning won’t be cured with medicines or pills.

Not when the fundamental problem is that you are being bullied or harassed or being treated unfairly.

I have helped many people in these difficult situations.

And ensured that the employee was given their entitlements.

Many times this has resulted in compensation for the employee.

Sometimes, however, it involves telling the employee that he or she has no case or claim, and what the employer is doing is lawful and reasonable.

If this is the case, I tell you.

Because I don’t believe in beating around the bush or giving you a load of bull when the best advice I can give you is:

“Look, you might be better off putting this issue behind you, because you are in danger of shooting yourself in the foot, for your lawful rights and entitlements are not being breached”.

One of the biggest benefits of knowing where you stand, and getting clarity,  is the reduction of stress and increased peace of mind.

And the ability to just put a worrying and stressful situation behind you and get on with your life.

In the vast majority of cases or disputes, resolving the problem has even resulted in better health and a feeling of security for the employee.

How does this service work?

There are 4 options for the consultation:

  1. you come to the office or
  2. by email or
  3. by phone or
  4. by Skype

The first thing I do is get all the relevant and necessary details from you.

This will include your version of the issue that is bothering you.  I will also look for your contract of employment, the staff handbook, any relevant letters or emails, and any other documents or information that I need.

Then we will decide whether I can advise by email and letter, or whether we need to speak on the phone or Skype, or whether you want to come to the office to speak face to face.

I am happy to do it whichever way you choose.

But the bottom line is you will be getting my professional opinion about your problem and what solutions might be open to you.

If it is a situation where you have misunderstood your rights and there is no action you can take I will tell you this, too.

It’s better that you know the truth rather than being told that you should bring a claim or legal action where you have no prospect of a successful outcome.

Just have a “Quick Question?”-this is not for you

If you just have a “quick question”, or want to “run something by me” this service is NOT for you.

Because I get a huge number of emails and calls and it would simply be too time consuming to answer them all.

If I did I would get very little done for my own clients. And, as you will understand, my clients take priority.

This service is about giving you specific advice about your particular circumstances, and will involve me having to review your contract of employment, relevant correspondence, and other documents connected with your employment.

You are free to access the huge amount of free information on this website, and on my YouTube channel, and my other websites. The Citizen’s Advice service may also be worth contacting, and they provide an excellent service.

What You Get

  • professional legal advice
  • an answer to your question and the options, if any, open to you
  • clarity about whether your employment rights are being breached
  • peace of mind.
