4 Things I Learned at the Employment Law CPD 2019
I attended CPD (continuous professional development) organised by Central Law Training yesterday and Marguerite Bolger SC gave an excellent hour-long presentation on dismissals in the employment law module I attended.
Some nuggets which I took away are
WRC or injunction?
One of the most important decisions for the employment law solicitor when advising a client is to decide whether the best course of action will be to go to the Workplace Relations Commission or to the High Court to seek an injunction. Some cases will be suitable for the WRC, some will not.
On the other hand, some cases will not be amenable to High Court injunction proceedings and the factors to consider will be the employee, employer, the circumstances of the case and whether there is a breach of contract or not. If there is no breach of contract or a constitutional right then seeking an injunction would be inadvisable.
