Please provide some guidelines on retirement legislation
Does an employee’s notice period increase with their tenure?
Although there is currently no legal requirement to pay paternity leave, could it be viewed as discrimination if the employer chooses not to pay paternity leave when they pay other types of leave such as maternity leave?
Could you clarify whether workers who have a fixed place of work but must travel distances away from their place of work during the course of their employment can count this travelling time as working time?
Re: fixed term grounds: Do objective grounds apply to fixed term contracts issued post- retirement (i.e. one off contracts beyond the age of 65 when 65 is the mandatory retirement age)?
Does an employee who is on unpaid sick leave accrue statutory annual leave according to the Workplace Relations Act?
Are there rules or guidelines around maintaining HR records?
Accrual of annual leave while on sick leave. Where a person is absent for 3 full years, will they have 3 years annual leave accrued or do they lose entitlement for a particular year if they do not return to work within 15 months of the end of the relevant year in which it would accrue?
Can an employee on maternity leave be dismissed if a fixed term contract expires in the middle of maternity leave?
Is there a requirement on the employer to ensure that an employee takes a minimum amount of annual leave?
