Employment Law Podcast: Bryan Dunne examines a recent unfair dismissal case

AUTHOR(S): Bryan Dunne
DATE: 05.02.2015

In our latest podcast Bryan Dunne, Head of Employment at Matheson  looks at a recent decision of the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) in which the employer successfully defended a decision to dismiss a security guard following an incident with a customer. The decision gives some useful insights into the practicalities of running an internal investigation and hearing, and the extent to which the Tribunal accepts that not all investigations are perfect. He also considered a recent UK decision requiring employers to include overtime in calculating holiday pay and what this means for employers in Ireland.  Finally, he takes a look at another weird and wonderful employment law case from around the world. 

You can download this podcasts from the Matheson Soundcloud or iTunes pages.
