New employer law - beware

Department of Enterprise and Employment has been criticised by IBEC on the Employment Law Compliance Bill and wants it amended. Employers can face jail term and a fine:

Rogue employers will face jail of up to three years and fines up to €250,000 if they breach the proposed new legislation to protect workers. Criminal offences include a failure to put up notices on employment rights in every language used in the workplace.
