In Ireland, the following must be adhered to under strict local legislation:
Employers are required to provide access to a company pension scheme, or, in the case of companies without a scheme, a Personal Retirement Saving Account (PRSA). Despite having to provide access, there is no obligation for the employer to contribute to either offering.
A full-time week consists of 38 hours. This can be increased up to a maximum of 48 hours, in line with the EU Working Time Directive. Employees working at least 35 hours a week are entitled to 4 weeks’ holiday per annum.
Employment rights are very strict in Ireland and we suggest using one of our local lawyers. Notice periods range from 1 week to 8 weeks, depending on the employee’s length of service. Severance pay is not required but is introduced to individuals with 2 years of unbroken employment or more.
