Employment Legislation and important Case Law 
What’s happened and happening in 2016?

HR Professionals, business owners, and managers are all too aware of the ongoing challenges in the area of Employment Law. With the changes to existing legislation, new Acts being introduced and the sheer volume of case law, it can be extremely difficult for any organisation to keep on top.

Against the backdrop of the newly established Workplace Relations Commission, employers in Ireland are faced with a new set of considerations. This new structure has permanently changed the way employees and employers deal with employment claims. The Commission promises to be a much more streamlined and effective system than that of the previous structures.

In line with this, Derek McKay, Managing Director, Adare Human Resource Management will discuss his observations and evaluation of the Workplace Relations Commission, the policies and procedures your organisation can put in place to negate future claims as well as the Irish Employment Law Landscape of 2016.


Our breakfast briefing will cover:
• Early observations from the Workplace Relations Commission – What is different & what HR practitioners need to know
• The Employment Law Landscape 2016 – What has happened so far in terms of changing employment legislation, case law & future developments in this area
• Where organisations are falling short – Adare Human Resource Management share their insight


Who should attend? HR Practitioners, Managers, Business Owners

Time will be allocated throughout and at the end for Q&A.
