Employment Law

At Doherty Solicitors, we act for and advise both employers and employees on employment law.

With the growth of employment related litigation it is essential for employers to have access to expert advice and assistance on employment and labour law issues.

Many employees have found themselves victimised or harassed at work or been dismissed or disciplined in grossly unfair circumstances.

At Doherty Solicitors, we have extensive experience with disputes, grievances and claims and are actively involved with the Employment Law Association of Ireland (ELAI). The ELAI promotes the exchange of ideas and information and to encourage close collaboration among those with a professional interest in the practice or study of employment law on the island of Ireland.

If you are an employer, remember that your employee contracts should be reviewed regularly – they should not sit on file for posterity. Feel free to contact us for a review or for specific advice.

If you are an employee and think that your employment rights have been infringed, remember that you only have a maximum of six months from the time your employment ends to bring a case before a tribunal.

We specialise in the following:

  • Contracts of employment
  • Termination of employment
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Transfer of Undertakings
  • Bullying, harassment and stress claims
  • Employments equality/discrimination
  • Part time and fixed term workers
  • Leave issues
  • Absence and performance management
  • Data Protection
  • Redundancy and work force restructuring
