Labour in Ireland book

Every employer must select a pay reference period for each individual employee. The entitlement to time off and payment for such absences is regulated by the Maternity Protection Time off for Ante-natal and Post-natal Care Regulations Irish employment law is therefore almost an extension of the law of contract, since much of its substance derives from and relates to contract law.

In addition, with regard to selection for redundancy or lay-off, a Collective Agreement or even a Contract of Employment may outline the procedure to be adopted in selection. Remuneration includes basic pay, allowances, bonuses, benefit-in-kind and employers' contribution to Pension and V.

The May Day dances traditionally signified the beginning of the courting season for young people. Industrial Relations The Industrial Relations Acts provide for a mainly non-compulsory regime of conciliation and arbitration for disputes between employers and employees. Such an action will usually be based on a failure by the employer to comply with the tenets of natural justice.

For example matters such as non-disclosure of confidential information by employees or the securing of intellectual property rights should be considered or an employer may have a particular requirement regarding the availability of employees for shift or weekend work.

Disputes under the Act may be referred to a Rights Commissioner. The parties are of course free to agree any terms suitable to the particular employment and to agree terms, which go beyond the minimum legal protections.

In practice, such an alliance actually existed in the s and s—between the rural labour movement and the Home Rule Party—and labour issues always took a poor second place to nationalist concerns.

The traditional view accepted by lawyers and industrial relations practitioners and actors was that the law should adopt an abstentionist role in relation to collective bargaining and industrial action, while supporting the individual employment relationship with a safety net of rights and obligations.

They were seen as holding office at the will of the Executive the Governmentwhich could thus dismiss them at will. Under the Redundancy Payments Actsa redundancy arises in the event of a termination of employment where an employer requires fewer employees or a lesser number of employees of a particular kind.

Such a person was regarded as holding 'office', ie their status was not that of employee but rather of 'office-holder'. The details of a contract of employment are referred to as its terms.
