Adare Webinar - An insight into the Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill that Employers should be aware of

05 February 2019

Adare Human Resource Management are delighted to invite you to our upcoming webinar entitled an insight into the Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill that Employers should be aware of.

This webinar will be conducted by Katie Ridge, Head of Employer Relations of Adare Human Resource Management.

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection has confirmed that the Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill will come into force from the first week of March 2019. The enactment will be proceeded by a public awareness campaign led by the Workplace Relations Commission (the “WRC”), ahead of its commencement.

The objective of the Bill is to address issues that arise for workers with unspecified/insecure hours of work by the provision of new statutory protections and rights and the prohibition of the use by employers of zero-hour contracts, save in certain limited circumstances.

The main provisions in the Bill contain amendments to the following Acts:

a) Organisation of Working Time Act 1997; and

b) Terms of Employment (Information) Acts 1994 – 2014.

In order to have your question(s) answered in the webinar next week, please submit your question(s) to marketing@adarehrm.ie by no later than Friday 8th February at 1pm.
