This practical, plain-language guide outlines and explains the laws which govern all aspects of employment relations — including the duties and obligations of employers and employees, individual bargaining and employment agreements, collective bargaining and collective agreements, health and safety, working hours, remuneration, holidays, termination, disputes and grievances, discrimination, information and privacy, and much more.

Key decisions from the Employment Court, the Employment Relations Authority and other courts and tribunals are used to show how employment laws and agreements are interpreted and applied. 

The Guide is revised annually, and the law and decisions it contains are right up to date.

  • sets out the new rights of victims of domestic violence to paid leave and flexible working arrangements
  • includes key decisions from the Employment Court and the Employment Relations Authority in 2018
  • details more than 20 Acts of Parliament which govern employment and employment relations.
