Employment law

Staff resource management is becoming a bigger issue, as horticulture and agricultural businesses grow from single family unit to multiple family and employee dependent operations. It is important that all employees and family members know the business priorities and the reasons for decisions.

For many developing businesses today the most important decisions made are those relating to staff recruitment and management. Furthermore a key part of the staff management process is understanding your rights as an employer under current employment law.

Employment law is one of the most rapidly changing areas of law and it can be a challenge to remain completely up-to-date with all the latest regulations.

In order to help address the issues of employment law for the Association of Landscape Contractors of Ireland (ALCI), a seminar was recently held at CAFRE Greenmount Campus.

The invited speaker and employment law specialist, Ciara Fulton who is a partner in Tughans solicitors, Belfast, gave a comprehensive overview of employment law in Northern Ireland. The seminar was also addressed by Tughans Associate Director Sharon McArdle.
