Michelle McDonagh, Consulting and Client Relationship Manager, Adare Human Resource Management
As we close out a very busy 2022, we reflect on all the upcoming HR and Employment law developments that are impacting Irish businesses. The 2022 Recap of HR & Employment Law sets out the updates and business obligations in more detail for you.
The updates include, the new Codes of Practice on Harassment and Sexual Harassment, effective from March 2022, outlined new recommendations for Irish businesses to handle such issues. Additionally, the new Code of Practice on Equal Pay, also took effect in March 2022, promoting the development of procedures to ensure equal pay for like work.
In June 2022, the Gender Pay Gap Information Act required organisations to publish their hourly gender pay gap within six months. This applies to all organizations on a phased basis, with those employing 250 or more employees required to do so by December 2022.
The Sick Leave Act, which will come into effect on 1st January, 2023, introduces an entitlement to statutory sick pay for all employees in Ireland.
Finally, the Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Act, also set to come into force on 1st January, 2023, expands certain obligations of employers to further protect workers in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors from retaliation if they speak up about wrong doing in the workplace.
