The Work Life Balance Act – Are You Ready?
The pace of change and complexity across the Employment Law, Industrial Relations and HR Management spectrum is not slowing down. The opportunity to keep abreast of change and plan for the future is happening through our upcoming webinar.

2022 brought a slew of updates such as Statutory Sick Pay, Minimum Wage, Gender Pay Gap Reporting, Workplace Harassment, Whistleblowing, Tips and Gratuities, and Bank Holidays entitlements.

This trend continues in 2023, with changes around Probationary periods, Work Patterns, Flexible and Remote working and Leave entitlements. Stay in the know and join leading senior HR, IR and Employment Law specialists as they discuss the most recent updates on the long-awaited Work Life Balance Act where Adare HRM Consultants will explore in detail the practical considerations for businesses, answering key questions and providing guidance for Employers on what they need to do to remain complaint.

Topics To Be Discussed:

The Work Life Balance and Miscellaneous Provisions Act has been passed both Houses of the Oireachtas and has been signed into law by the President. The Act introduces several new Employee rights including:

  • Domestic violence leave
  • Leave for medical care purposes
  • Right to request flexible working for parents and carers
  • Right to request remote working for all employees
  • Extended breastfeeding break entitlements

The Act also sees amendments to the Maternity Protection Acts, Adoption Act, Family Leave and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 2021, the Workplace Relations Act 2015 and many more.

Business Leaders, Senior Managers, Business Owners, HR Professionals and those tasked with the responsibility for managing change within their organisation.
