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.
Mark McAllister from the Labour Relations Agency and Scott Alexander from Legal Island discussed the top 10 employment cases of the year, including any updates since our Annual Review of Employment Law conferences in November.
Employers may sometimes state that a contract of employment is permanent subject to the completion of a satisfactory probationary period.
If the amount you have been paid differs from what is expected, speak with your employer first to check what has happened. Your employer can then either correct the mistake or explain why there is a change in your pay.
If an employer fundamentally breaches a contract of employment, it could lead to the employee resigning. If an employee fundamentally breaches a contract of employment he or she could be dismissed.
