7 Simple Steps for Irish Employers to Avoid Costly Employment Claims

  1. 1. Minimum requirements in employment law in Ireland http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  2. 2.   This statement must be given to the employee within two months of commencing employment. The relevant act is the Terms of Employment (Information) Act 1994 which sets out the basic information that an employee is entitled to be given in writing about their contract of employment http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  3. 3.  You must provide the employee with a written statement of pay and deductions http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  4. 4.  There are exceptions to the minimum wage in Ireland of €8.65 per hour but most adults will be entitled to it; in addition certain industries have their own higher minimum wage. http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  5. 5.  Employers must keep records of hours worked by employees to ensure compliance with the maximum working week average of 48 hours which may be calculated over a 4, 6 or 12 month period depending on the industry. http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  6. 6.   The breaks to which employees are entitled are set out in the Organization of Working Time Act, 1997. Currently break entitlements are 15 minutes per four and a half hours work and a 30 minute break for six hours worked. http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  7. 7.  Holiday entitlements are also covered in the Organization of Working Time Act, 1997. In general full time workers are entitled to four paid weeks holidays per year with part timers being entitled to similar holidays on a pro rata basis depending on hours worked which equates to one third of a week per month worked. http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  8. 8.  The minimum notice periods are set out in the Minimum Notice and Terms of Employment Acts 1973 to 2001 and depend on the length of service with the minimum regardless of service being 1 week. http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  9. 9.   Employers can save themselves a lot of money and time involved in defending or otherwise dealing with claims by their employees by some prudent management and housekeeping. Doing business nowadays can be a fraught enough activity without inviting needless trouble on yourself for the want of a straightforward contract of employment and/or letter of offer and/or statement of your employees’ terms and conditions. http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
  10. 10.      At a minimum you should carry out an audit of your Contracts of employment Staff handbooks Disciplinary and grievance procedures All workplace policy documents. http://EmploymentRightsIreland.c om 046/95 49 614
