HR Professionals, Business Owners and Managers are all too aware of the on-going 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 will permanently change 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 discussed his observations and evaluation of 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.
