At Porter Morris, our experienced employment law solicitors provide our clients with practical and high quality legal advice in contentious and non-contentious employment law issues.
A whole range of issues fall under the general term “employment law”. It includes non-contentious matters such as drafting or advising on contracts of employment, disciplinary and grievance procedures and health and safety procedures, and contentious matters such as claims for unfair dismissal, breach of contract and injunctions.
Employment law is a very complex area of law with extensive legislation governing different areas including the Unfair Dismissals Acts, the Redundancy Payments Acts and Health and Safety Acts and Data Protection Acts.
We have extensive experience over many years of employment law practice acting for employers and employees in a range of issues including:
- Claims for unfair or constructive dismissal.
- Claims for work related stress and personal injury.
- Claims for bullying and harassment.
- Claims for wrongful dismissal.
- Injunction Applications.
We regularly act on behalf of clients in the Employment Appeals Tribunals, the Circuit and High Courts in regard to such matters.
In non-contentious matters, our solicitors advise our employment law clients on rights and obligations on a whole range of issues including:
- Terms and conditions of employment.
- Working hours and holidays.
- Minimum notice.
- Maternity and paternity leave.
- Redundancies and retirement.
- Data protection issues.
- Transfers of undertakings
We also prepare employment law documentation for clients including contracts of employment, employee handbooks, disciplinary and grievance procedures, health and safety procedures and codes of practice for email and internet use.
