claims by employees against you as an employer because there’s a quite a raft
of legislation dealing with employment law in ireland and this video this short
video is going to look at seven clinical areas that you need to be very much
aware of to avoid expensive employment claims the first thing is that you are
legally obliged to give a statement of terms and conditions of employment to
your employees this is set out in the terms of employment information act of
1994 and you have two months to give your employee employee statement
containing some essential information about the employment the items of
information are set out clearly in the terms of employment information act of
1994 in addition to that you need to give a written statement of pay this can
be a payslip or some other form of written statement what you do need to
providers or Neela could find you in breach of the legislation the minimum
wage down in Ireland are currently is eight euros and 65 cents however there
are some exceptions to this but generally 865 is the minimum you are
allowed to pay employees some industries then have a higher minimum wage that’s
something that you need to be careful about also depending on your industry
the maximum number of hours worked in a week is 48 hours currently and this can
be calculated over four month or six months or twelve one period depending on
your industry but again you cannot breach this a mirror may if I find you

then you can be facing potential penalties and district court prosecution
the organization of working time at the end of nineteen ninety seven sets out
quite clearly the brakes to which your employees are entitled and this is not a
piece of legislation that you can afford to ignore the organization of working
time Act 1997 also provides for holidays and holiday leave for your employees
essentially it amounts to four paid weeks holidays per year for a full-time
employee and it works out then on a pro-rata basis for part-time workers it
works out as roughly one third of a week per month worked minimum notice then is
another area that you may fall foul of if you terminate the employment of an
employee the absolute minimum is one week but this will depend on the length
of service and the minimum notice in terms of employment acts 1973 to 2001
set out the various and notice periods you need to give depending on service to
