How well do you know your employment rights?

Here’s everything you should know…

THERE HAVE BEEN a number of employment appeals reported on in the last month with large sums of money being awarded to workers who were unfairly dismissed.

At the beginning of the month it was revealed that a lifeguard was awarded €27,500 after being sacked for walking out on an aqua aerobics class as instructions given to him in relation to staffing levels were found to be confusing.

More recently a woman was awarded €17,500 after being dismissed while on maternity leave and a Dunnes Stores worker got €16,000 after losing her job for selling alcohol to a 16 year old in a garda sting operation.

Without knowing or being informed of their rights by an outside party, none of these workers would have gotten those results. O’Donnell McKenna solicitors have put together these handy infographics to help you get your knowledge of employment rights up to scratch.
