It has been a busy start to 2018 with a number of developments in a range of areas both in Employment Law and Immigration Law in Ireland. A&L Goodbody's Employment team reviews the trends and what we can expect in the coming year.

  • What's next on the Gender Agenda in Ireland? We review recent gender pay gap issues, developments and practices and flag the most significant change that is coming down the tracks for employers in 2018.
  • Donald Trump took office aged 70, Warren Buffet is 87, Janet Yellen is 71, Angela Merkel is 61 - 18 CEOs of S&P 500 companies are aged over 70 and a further 47 CEOs are aged over 65. We know that older employees are still contributing to their organisations long after the conventional retirement age. We look at the developments in relation to mandatory retirement ages below.
  • Flexibility is King – or is it? Will Irish law keep pace with the changes to the way we work or will the gig economy drive on, pushing the boundaries of our existing employment law framework?
  • And in brief – GDPR, Minimum Wage and Immigration Law developments.
