Our Employment & Benefits team offers high quality advice on complex employment issues, including regulatory matters, whistle-blowing and corporate immigration, as well as the specialist areas of health and safety and employee incentives. The team has particular skill in advising on general employment matters including employment terms and incentives, statutory rights and obligations, unfair dismissals, equality, redundancy and terminations. Our clients include many leading multinational and Irish companies, public sector organisations and senior-level employees.
