Employment law the focus of upcoming local seminar

An important seminar on updates on employment law will be hosted in Athlone this week.

The midlands branch of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), in conjunction with Collins McNicholas Recruitment and HR Services Group, is pleased to announce details of their upcoming ‘Annual Employment Law Update’ which will take place in the Sheraton Athlone Hotel at 8am on this Wednesday, January 20.

This event will focus on a review of case law and other developments in employment law over the last year, with a particular emphasis on what practitioners should be aware of over the coming year. There will be a networking opportunity with full breakfast provided, followed by the speaker commencing at 8.30am sharp.

The speaker for the event is Alastair Purdy, Partner, Purdy FitzGerald Solicitors. As one of Ireland’s leading law firms in employment law, Purdy FitzGerald Solicitors advises a substantial number of both indigenous and multinational companies. Purdy FitzGerald was formed by the merger of Purdy Legal and F.M. FitzGerald solicitors in 2009.

The firm is headed by Alastair Purdy and Norman Fitzgerald who recognised the need for a dedicated business law firm to serve the market in the West of Ireland. Their goal is to help employers run their businesses by managing any and all commercial, employment, health, safety, litigation and environmental legal matters in a practical and efficient manner.

Purdy FitzGerald Solicitors are one of very few legal firms in the country to have achieved the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system standard. The achievement of this standard reflects the firm’s commitment to the provision of services to an internationally recognised and independently audited standard.
