Employment Law

The past 20 years has seen enormous growth in the body of law related to employment and labour relations matters. There have been numerous legislative changes in that time and the employment institutions, the Employment Court, the Employment Relations Authority and the Labour Department’s Mediation Service, deal with hundreds of cases each year.

The members of Bankside Chambers are available to offer a full range of services to employees, unions and employers – whether small businesses, large corporations, government departments, or local authorities – on any and all issues which may arise in the employment context.

Members of Chambers are highly experienced in providing advice and representation on: the drafting and negotiation of individual and collective employment agreements; compliance with the wide range of statutory provisions including the Employment Relations Act 2000, the Holidays Act 2003, the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, the Parental Leave and Employment Protection Act 1987 and the Human Rights Act 1993; personal grievances involving dismissals or other employment disputes; damages claims for breach of employee or employer duties; organisational restructuring; industrial strategies; and corporate governance.
