Our Job Is To Get You Compensation You Deserve

What if I don’t have a Contract?

What if I don’t have an actual Employment Contract?

That doesn’t matter.  The law assumes that there is a basic contract in place and that many of the fundamental employment rights and protections are deemed to protect you even if there’s no written contract in place. Therefore even without a contract you still have rights as an employee and you may be entitled to compensation if those rights have been violated by your employer. Employment law in Ireland is comprehensive and provides a good level of protection for employees. Your employment relationship is essentially based on an implied contract of employment and there are certain rights, both express and implied, in that contract as well as employee rights that are guaranteed to every employee by legislation.  These rights still apply to you even if you don’t have a signed contract of employment.  To find out more about what is likely to be involved in your case and to get a free assessment of your case, please go here. However, let’s not put the cart before the horse, if you choose us, we will provide you with a preliminary assessment of your case and agree how you wish to proceed with you before engaging with anyone. We also advise clients to make a note in as much detail as possible of what happened to them.  It may take six to nine months for your case to be heard and it is always useful for you to have a note of what happened to remind you of anything that you might have forgotten because of the passage of time.  The better a record you keep of what happened to you, the better able you will be to demonstrate to us and the WRC the full extent of your claim.  Of course, you should never exaggerate what happened to you but, by the same token, you should not lose out on what you are entitled to because you forget how awful things were as time goes by.  One of the most important things you can do is to write things down as you go along so that you can refer back to your notes whenever you are asked about it.

What do I need to Do Next?

Every month, we offer a select number of potential clients an opportunity to meet with one of our team for a free, no obligation, initial consultation to discuss the options available to you. At that meeting we will LISTEN and go through with you every aspect of your case and can give you clear advice about your options, what legal steps you can take to make this stop and we will also explain the whole process and the strengths and weaknesses of your case.  If you wish to proceed we will file your claim, draft written submissions and represent you at any Court hearing. Due to high demand and because we only work with a limited number of cases, we only offer 20 appointments a month.  We know that these appointments always fill up very quickly.  Contact us today to see how we can help you chose the outcome you want.  Please also remember that you only have two years from the date of your accident or injury to make your claim so don’t delay, the clock is ticking.  After that time limit passes, your claim is what’s called “statute barred” which means that you can’t make a claim at all after that.
