Employment Law podcast reviews Reilly v Bank of Ireland case

AUTHOR(S): Bryan Dunne
PRACTICE AREA GROUP: Employment, Pensions and Benefits
DATE: 26.08.2015

In this edition of the Matheson Irish Employment Law Podcast series, Bryan Dunne reviews the recent decision by the Irish High Court in Reilly v Bank of Ireland, in which an employee was reinstated to his position six years after he had actually been dismissed. This judgment turned on a number of points, though one of the key issues from an employer’s perspective is how it may now restrict an employer's ability to suspend an employee pending a disciplinary investigation. These are issues already being raised by employees' representatives since this decision came out, so HR professionals and employers need to be aware of the implications of this decision, and how to deal with them.

You can download all of the episodes in the series here. They are also available to download on iTunes and Soundcloud.

The Irish Employment Law Podcast Series is produced by Bryan Dunne, Head of Employment at Matheson. In the series he discusses the latest developments in Irish employment law. The podcasts are a key resource in keeping up to date for HR practitioners, employment lawyers and international employers with employees in Ireland.
