Our next seminar is on 25th October 2018 in the offices of McCann FitzGerald, our kind host for the evening. Registration will be from 6pm with the seminar to begin at 6-30pm.
 
The seminar will cover a review of the past year and also look forward to what is on the horizon.
 
We are delighted once again to have secured two very high quality speakers.
 
Des Ryan B.L., practising barrister and Associate Professor and Fellow in Law at Trinity College Dublin will review recent developments in case law, including two interesting Court of Appeal decisions, firstly the case of Dillon v CUS looking specifically at the emphasis the Court placed on the significance of a final written warning and the views the Court expressed in relation to employment disputes coming before the Courts, and what potential implications that has for us all, and our clients. Des will secondly look at the Court’s decision in McCarthy v ISS, a workplace stress case where the Court found for the plaintiff in negligence,  and will thirdly review the recent UK Court of Appeal decision in the Barclays Bank case regarding vicarious liability for independent contractors. He has further undertaken to provide updates on other significant employment cases that occur between now and the date of the seminar. 
 
 
Linda Hynes is Managing Associate in the Employment, Immigration and Reward department of Lewis Silkin’s Dublin office and is going to speak about the Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2017 specifically looking at changes to current legislation which the Bill proposes, the potential implications of those changes, the banded hours proposed and the penalties and sanctions proposed for breaches. With this Bill appearing high on the legislative agenda and the Oireachtas returning this week, Linda will be keeping an eye on developments between now and the date of the seminar to deliver the most up to date position.
 
We look forward to seeing you on the night.
