Dismissal For Not Paying For a Cup of Tea Upheld

In this appeal (UD 826/2013) against a previous Rights Commissioner Recommendation the employee's dismissal whilst deemed to be harsh was not held to be unfair as per the Unfair Dismissal Acts

Do I Have To Allow An Employee Bring Their Solicitor To A Disciplinary Hearing?

This week I will deal with some commonly asked questions about different HR Topics.

Employee Loses Gross Misconduct Appeal

Following on from my summary last week of what constitutes gross misconduct in the workplace,this recently published case (UD/323/2012) illustrates how gross misconduct dismissals can be fair and reasonable if the sanction is relevant to the specific business objectives of the employer.

Gross Misconduct

What is gross misconduct and how does it differ from normal misconduct? Is there such a thing as instant dismissal?

€81,000 Awarded for Workplace Discrimination

A female lecturer was awarded over 80k compensation when the Equality Tribunal determined that she had suffered gender and disability discrimination for almost 10 years in a male dominated working environment.

Work Place Dress Codes

Are they necessary and what are the potential issues that can arise when introducing a dress code in the work place?

Dismissal for Using Bad Language Deemed Unfair

When is dismissal a valid first and final disciplinary sanction? In a recent case (UD 1525/2012) a customer service rep for a waste re-cycling company who had used expletives and offensive language with her colleagues was awarded €12,500 for unfair dismissal

Constructive Dismissal

An employee was successful in her recent claim for unfair dismissal on grounds of constructive dismissal because her employer failed to deal with complaints of bullying she had raised against a colleague.

What is Force Majeure Leave ?

Entitlement to paid Force Majeure leave is often misunderstood by both employers and employees and is only available in very limited circumstances and for a limited number of days.

Redundancy Do's & Dont's

Whilst we are not experiencing the same level of redundancies of late as in recent years the EAT still takes a dim view of employers who don't fall due process and procedure when terminating employment due to redundancy.
