Employment Law

The law relating to employment can be a minefield. Philip Vint & Co. Solicitors have the experience and knowledge to advise and guide both employers and employees through this tricky area.


We deal with a range of employment law issues to include unfair dismissal, redundancy, maternity, equality, retirement, transfer of undertakings and we advise on contract drafting.

Employment disputes can be vastly reduced by properly drafted employment contracts setting out the precise terms between an employer and employee. The law requires all employers to issue their employees with a ‘Statement of terms’ of their employment; a clear employment contract can go even further.

The first issue to deal with in many employment cases, such as for unfair dismissal, is whether an individual qualifies as an employee to avail of protective legislation. One year’s continuous employment is required, although in practise this can equate to 51 weeks actual service plus a minimum of one week’s notice.

How we can help
Communication is often the key in resolving employment disputes. This in itself means understanding all of the issues and being clear on the facts. If matters cannot be settled by negotiation, then consideration is then given to issuing the appropriate proceedings. If contracts are required, we will assess your business and your needs before drafting these for you.


*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or proportion of any award or settlement

I had the great pleasure in using Philip’s services as a solicitor recently. I’ve used various solicitors over the years and Philip stands out as being the best experience I’ve ever had with one. Besides being excellent at his job, he explained everything in terms I could understand, there was no hidden fee’s and was very clear on what costs were involved. His dedication, excellent communication and knowledge of the issues around my legal needs seriously impressed me. He gave me great peace of mind in dealing with my legal issue and I can highly recommend him if you need a solicitor. Many thanks Philip.

Grace R, Dublin

I had an accident on my motorbike which I did not cause. I only had 3rd party insurance and was told by both my own and the other person’s insurance company to go away. I knew this was wrong. A friend recommended Philip Vint to me. Philip understood what I was going through and sorted it all out.
