Bryan Dunne, Head of Employment at Matheson, discusses the latest developments in Irish employment law. The podcasts are a key resource in keeping up to date for HR practitioners, employment lawyers and international employers with employees in Ireland.

Episode 8 – February 2015

In this episode Bryan looks at a recent decision of the EAT in which the employer successfully defended a decision to dismiss a security guard following an incident with a customer. The decision gives some useful insights into the practicalities of running an internal investigation and hearing, and the extent to which the Tribunal accepts that not all investigations are perfect. He also considered a recent UK decision requiring employers to include overtime in calculating holiday pay and what this means for employers in Ireland.  Finally, he takes a look at another weird and wonderful employment law case from around the world.
