Employment issues can be a legal minefield especially for employees who have not been treated fairly in work or need guidance on how to protect their position. Johanna has a wealth of experience in this area, regularly representing employees at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) and in the Labour Court, on issues such as unfair dismissal and redundancy claims. Johanna advises clients on their contracts of employment when they start a new job and any on-going issues they may have at work including bullying and sexual harassment.
Johanna adds considerable value to businesses advising employers of their duties and obligations under Employment Legislation minimising any risk of non-compliance. Emphasis is firmly placed on the importance of a good employment contract as one of the best ways an employer can protect their business. Removing ambiguity between the employer and employee is key to avoiding future claims.
