Employment Law

If your employer has treated you unfairly, causing you to suffer emotional or financial injury, you could be entitled to pursue legal action. To find out how to sue an employer, get in touch with us at Gibson & Associates.

How to sue an employer

Employees in Ireland have a number of employment rights that intend to protect them against unfairEmployment Claims practices. If an employer breaches these rights, the aggrieved member of staff may choose to take action in the form of an employment claim.

Before a claim against employer proceeds, however, it is best to try to resolve the matter informally. If this is not possible, or it does not produce an acceptable result, the next step will be to seek independent legal advice.

A solicitor who specialises in claims against employers will be able to discuss the situation with you before suggesting what options are available. If you do have grounds to take legal action, you will be advised how to sue an employer and what action to take next.

Claims against employers can arise for many different reasons, with unfair dismissal and discrimination being amongst the most common. Other grievances include harassment, redundancy and wage disputes.
