Law Conference
Croke Park, Dublin
Thursday 11th May 2017

Welcome to Ibec Annual Employment Law Conference

2017 will be a pivotal year for employment law policy in Ireland. Several new policy initiatives, which will affect every business, have already dominated the headlines including proposals in relation to zero hours contracts and banded hours contracts, developments in retirement age and numerous Private Member Bills, all of which present a variety of challenges for employers. We will examine these new initiatives as well as the employment law implications of Brexit. The Assistant Data Protection Commissioner will examine the implications of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the top five breaches of data protection in the workplace in the last 12 months. We will also examine the most important employment law cases of recent months and provide guidance on carrying out a workplace investigation. Our guest speaker will advise on how best to manage external communications when internal employment matters become public, whether it is a strike, dismissal, protected disclosure or an injunction and he will provide his top tips for effective communication inside and outside the workplace.
