Conducting Workplace Investigations

As the WRC and Courts have continued to highlight deficiencies in workplace investigation practices, and employers have to deal with the implications and costs of inadequate investigations, this short article summaries some key points to consider when setting up a workplace investigation.

Right To Legal Representation At Disciplinary Hearings

The Court of Appeal decision last October in Irish Rail v McKelvey has provided some much needed clarity for HR practitioners on the issue of whether legal representation should be permitted at internal disciplinary hearings, following the confusion caused by the earlier decision of Eagar J in Lyons v Longford & Westmeath ETB.

Gross Misconduct Dismissal Held To Be Fair

The Labour Court recently rejected an appeal by a hotel worker that his summary dismissal for breach of IT & Security Policies was unfair and confirmed that the decision to dismiss was within the range of responses of a reasonable employer with regard to the employee's conduct and that his dismissal was not unfair (Determination UDD 1839).

Beauty Therapist Retains 10k Award in Appeal

In this recent Labour Court Determination(UD1835), following an appeal by a Beauty Company against an Adjudicator's decision to award a former employee €10,000, there are lots of learning points for employers on how to run disciplinary procedures correctly, as the Labour Court dismissed the appeal due to a number of procedural errors on how the disciplinary process was run.

Reinstatement For Banker Unfairly Dismissed for Gross Misconduct

In a recent decision of the WRC, a bank has been ordered to re-instate a dismissed employee where it was found that the bank had insufficient grounds to uphold the allegations for which the complainant was summarily dismissed (ADJ-00001266).
