Paternity Leave Request Results in Dismissal


In recent WRC decision it was found that an employee’s request for paternity leave may have resulted in his dismissal. The claim was taken under the Industrial Relations Acts where a recommendation can only issue. A claim under different legislation may have resulted in a different outcome. https://www.workplacerelations.ie/en/cases/2019/july/adj-00018852.html
