Not sure it’s for you?

The cost of mistakes in this area can be costly.

There have been some costly awards made by the Workplace Relations Commission and Labour Court in the last 12 months, especially in relation to unfair dismissal and discrimination.

Smaller claims, when you add them all up, can quickly amount to a significant amount of money.

Throw in the cost of representation from a HR or legal professional and it can be an expensive but necessary step to defend claims against you.

If the relatively small investment in this book helped you as an employer avoid a claim like this, or helped you as an employee win such an award, wouldn’t it be a good investment?

Written by a practicing solicitor

It’s written by a practicing solicitor who has been an employer in Ireland since 1986 in a variety of industries and who is involved in advising and representing in employment claims and disputes every week of the year.

By the end of this book, you will have a clear idea of what you can, and cannot, do as an employer or HR professional.

As an employee you will have clarity about your rights as an employee in the Irish workplace.
