Employment Law in Ireland  is a new book which provides a comprehensive account of this increasingly complex area of law.

Employment law is a rapidly expanding and increasingly important aspect of Irish legal practice. Significantly influenced and informed by developments at European Union level and by various Constitutional imperatives, it is composed not only of a complex body of legislation and case law, but also of determinations from specialist tribunals such as the Labour Court, the Employment Appeals Tribunal and the Equality Tribunal.

In this book the authors draw together the various strands and sources of employment law as it applies in Ireland into a coherent framework. All aspects of employment law are considered, ranging from the legal concerns that apply before an employment contract is signed, to the various entitlements and obligations of employer and employee while the contract is ongoing, to the relevant legal framework governing the circumstances in which an employment relationship is terminated.

Employment Law in Ireland is aimed at legal practitioners who specialise in employment and related areas of law, students, HR managers, trade union members and any one interested in employment law.
