I’m surprised by the number of solicitors who do not do employment law or have made the intentional decision to avoid it.
It is probably because of the sheer quantity of laws and regulations surrounding employment law, and the many frequent changes, that make it a murky, labyrinthine area of law.
Much of it can involve employees feeling hard done by and taken for granted.
However, from time to time you come across a case where a person has been spectacularly badly treated or discriminated against and you are immediately angered and motivated to try to help.
It is those cases that motivate me and keep me interested, not the minor injuries to a person’s ego as a result of not getting a promotion or being investigated for some allegation or complaint against them.
My book on employment law might prove useful to you if you have an interest in employment law in Ireland.
