The team forms part of a multidisciplinary team within KPMG, including tax professionals who advise on a broad range of employee-related taxation and social security issues, and professionals who are experienced in executive and employee share incentive schemes, and recruitment advisors. The team provides legal advice on all Irish and European legislation relating to or affecting the employment relationship, and generally provides advice in the following areas:

  • Employment contracts and handbooks
  • Unfair dismissals, disciplinary and grievance matters 
  • Restructuring and redundancies
  • Transfer of undertakings
  • Employment permits and visa requirements
  • Atypical workers (part-time, fixed-term etc.)
  • Equality and gender pay gap matters
  • Health and safety issues relating to stress, bullying and harassment
  • Employee privacy and data protection
  • Employee benefit and incentive schemes
  • Organisation of working time and protective leave 

Employment Law Audits

The team also undertakes immigration and employment law audits to ensure employers are compliant with Irish and European Labour Law. Such audits can be a prudent and a cost-effective measure for businesses of all types and sizes.The objective is to identify any risk areas where a business may face potential legal compliance or financial exposure in their capacity as an employer. Our Immigration specialists and Employment lawyers are experienced in carrying out these audits and, after identifying and assessing any risk, recommending measures which are designed to help minimise exposure in this complex and litigious area.

Immigration Law Services

Our immigration law services cover the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. We assist clients with recruiting non EEA nationals to live and work in Ireland and Northern Ireland. We advise on matters such as:

  • Advising on and applying for the most appropriate employment permits for non EEA employees coming in to work in Ireland – e.g. a General Employment Permit, a Critical Skills Employment Permit or an Atypical Working Scheme Approval
  • Advising on and applying for Visas for employees coming from visa required countries e.g. India
  • Ensuring our clients are legally compliant with all aspects of Immigration legislation to ensure they have nothing to fear if they are subjected to an inspection from the Workplace Relations Commission

International Network and Corporate Restructuring

As part of an international employment law network, the Corporate Immigration and Employment Law team is able to respond quickly to clients’ needs on a global basis. This allows the team to assist with the management of the human resource aspects of domestic and international restructuring and with global projects.

The team also advises on "Transfer of Undertaking" issues, which arise upon the sale / acquisition of a business or part of a business.
