Since the devolution of employment law powers to the Northern Ireland Assembly, there has been an ever increasing divergence between employment laws in Northern Ireland and those in Great Britain. As practitioners it is imperative to understand the differences in order to properly advise clients. Legislation and caselaw from one jurisdiction may have more limited applicability in the other or there may be fundamental requirements that must be adhered to in one territory that do not apply in the other. In this session Rachel Best BL will cover the key differences between the jurisdictions and enable you to navigate your way around those divergences, including in relation to:

  • Discrimination and equality
  • Termination
  • Redundancies
  • TUPE
  • Working Time and Holidays
