    Employment Law at 11 - January 2023

    In this months Employment Law at 11, Seamus McGranaghan from the employment team at O'Reilly Stewart solicitors and Christine Quinn from Legal Island discuss:
    1. Office etiquette during flu season – Covid-19 is on the rise, flu season is upon us and bugs are doing the rounds in schools across the country – so how can you help ensure a healthy workforce without ruffling legal feathers? Can you ask employees to wear a mask if they have the sniffles? Do you have to pay them if they come into work, but you send them home? What about SSP? Seamus’ answers aren’t to be sniffed at……….
    2. Happy holidays – the new year brings a new holiday year too and with-it conflicting requests from employees who all want them same 2 weeks off for some fun in the sun, or just to mind the kids during school holidays to save on childcare. So how do you ensure a fair system for making requests? Is ‘first come, come served’ really the fairest way? Can you, or indeed should you, prioritise employees with children over those who don’t? Seamus explains.

    a.What are an employer’s legal obligations in relation to providing financial support?
    b.Contractual pay rise v one-off payments – the pros and cons of each solution.
    c.Company loans to employees – should you offer them? And if so, how do you manage them?
    d.Your employee takes on a second job – should you care?

    2.In these tough economic times, zero-hours workers and those in the gig economy are among the most vulnerable – what’s the latest on this ever-evolving area of employment law?
