Additional information

Employment Contract Details

Contracts must be in writing and in English.

Probation Period

Probation periods can be included in the employment agreement and are not limited in time. However, the common practice in Ireland is to have between 3 and 6 months of trial period.

Minimum Wage Requirements

For most employees, the Irish minimum wage is €10.20 per hour and is updated yearly.

Maximum working hours and overtime

The average Irish maximum number of working hours per week is 48 hour.

There is no statutory obligation to provide payment for overtime worked as long as an employee's overall pay does not fall below the statutory minimum wage.

Bonus and Expense Payments

Bonuses may be paid and are treated as additional salary. Terms and conditions are determined by the parties and must be included in the employment agreement to be enforced.Work-related expenses can be reimbursed, including travel expenses, with the exception of home-to workplace commuting expenses for which statutory allowances apply.

Parental Leave

In Ireland, parental leave is unpaid, there is no statutory requirement for employers to grant payment. Employees can take up to 26 weeks’ parental leave for each eligible child before their 12th birthday. In general, they must have been working for the same employer for at least a year to get the full amount of parental leave. Employees must give their employer at least 6 weeks’ notice before taking parental leave. An employee can take (or be granted) leave in 3 ways:

  • 1 continuous period of leave of 26 weeks
  • 2 separate blocks of a minimum of 6 weeks each (with a gap of at least 10 weeks between the 2 periods of parental leave per child)
  • If the employer consents, broken into working days and/or hours.

A Record should be kept of Parental Leave.

  • Maternity leave lasts for up to 26 weeks during which time the employee is entitled to a state maternity benefit payment (they must have made sufficient PRSI - Social Insurance - contributions to qualify for this). Maternity leave may be extended for an additional 16 weeks which would not qualify for the state benefit.
  • Parent’s leave entitles each parent to 2 weeks’ leave during the first year of a child’s life, or in the case of adoption, within one year of the placement of the child with the family. An employer does not have to pay employees while they are on parent’s leave, although some employers may ‘top-up’ their parent’s leave amount. If you qualify for Parent Leave Benefit from Social Welfare (i.e. The State) you will get the weekly rate set to EUR 245 each week.

Sick Leave

There is no statutory entitlement to sick pay in Ireland. An employee who is unable to work due to illness or injury will be entitled to receive State paid Illness Benefit from the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, after 6 days of absence (3 days during Covid-19 period), if they have made sufficient PRSI - Social Insurance - contributions. Therefore, In general an employee is not paid when on sick leave. Where an employee is unable to work because of illness and this is certified by the employee’s doctor then that employee can make a claim to the state for benefits for the period of illness. This will result in a weekly payment from the state but not from the employer. Therefore, it is at the discretion of the employer to decide their policy, subject to the employee’s contract or terms of employment.

Termination requirements for employees in

Ireland does not allow at-will termination of employment for employers; contracts may be terminated by mutual agreement or unilaterally for due cause (serious cause, unfit for the role, extinction of the role). Fixed-term contracts cannot be terminated early by the employer.Employees can appeal to a court if they consider the dismissal unjustified. Additional compensation may be due if the court deems the dismissal as unfair or in cases of redundancy.

Notice Period

Severance pay is due according to the notice period. In Ireland, the notice period is based on the length of the labor relationship:

  • Up to 2 years of employment - 1 week’s notice
  • Can reach up to 8 weeks' notice for employment lasting 15 years or more

A contracting life-changer!

"

This has by far the singular tool that made my contracting work amazing. It used to be that contract management and payouts was a nightmare — Deel makes everything so easy especially with its Transferwise integration. Everyone gets paid on time and kept happy. I also contacted their support a couple of times for some small questions and they’ve been nothing short of amazing. If you’re a contractor or someone who hires contractors then definitely give Deel a go.
