Issues covered: Comparative Employment Law table

This Comparative Employment Law Table outlines the key differences between GB, NI and ROI employment laws as of 1st December 2023. 

The purpose of this table is to provide a handy reference guide, complete with links to relevant legislation and other documents in the hope that this will assist you to understand and deal with the differences in employment law developments between the three jurisdictions.

With this in mind we have split the table by subject area, with an index at the front that we hope will make it easy to find particular comparisons.  We do not pretend that this table is comprehensive - indeed especially as regards to case law it could not possibly be so. We intend to update it at intervals and the authors would appreciate any suggestions for omissions or additions in future.
