Adare Human Resource Management are proud to participate in this event, in collaboration with our Partners, the Greater Dublin Chamber Alliance.

Join this virtual HR Support Webinar on “Sick Pay & Employment Law Update – Know Your Obligations”

What is this webinar about?

In the past, there was no obligation for employers to pay employees on sick leave but that has all changed, as of 1 January 2023, when the Sick Leave Act 2022 came into effect.

This informative event will cover the latest developments and regulations surrounding sick pay and other recent employment law changes you need to be aware of. The webinar will provide practical guidance on how to navigate your obligations as an employer. Learn about the latest requirements of the new Statutory Sick Pay scheme.

Whether you’re a business owner, manager or a HR professional, this panel discussion is a must-attend for anyone looking to stay informed and compliant in today’s rapidly changing landscape.

Join Adare Human Resource Management HR, Employment Law and Health and Safety experts as they discuss this topic in detail exploring practical considerations, answer key questions and provide guidance for businesses on what they need to do and what they should consider in this area.

  • What does the new Sick Leave Act 2022 mean for Irish Businesses?
