This briefing is intended to give participants an overview of the main differences between employment law in Northern Ireland as compared with Great Britain. Employment law is a devolved matter in Northern Ireland and in recent years reforms that have occurred in GB have not been replicated in NI thus creating several distinct differences in core areas of employment law such as unfair dismissal and the law as it relates to trade unions and industrial action. Some areas of employment law may possibly be reformed in 2018 and this briefing will also touch upon these areas.
