Great turn out for the CIPD Midlands Annual Employment Law Update held in partnership with Collins McNicholas Recruitment in the Sheraton Athlone Hotel on Wednesday last. This event focused on a review of Case Law and other developments in Employment Law over the last year, with a particular emphasis on what Practitioners should be aware of over the coming year. The speaker for the event was Alastair Purdy, Partner, Purdy FitzGerald Solicitors, one of Ireland’s leading Law Firms in Employment Law.
Alastair highlighted changes to the redundancy rebate system, parental leave entitlements and the JLC system, among others. He also provided a review of cases of note in the past year and the implications for future cases, including fixed term contracts, retirement ages and bullying and harassment.
This is the first event of the Collins McNicholas Employment Law Update series, taking place in Sligo, Galway and Cork over the coming months.
