Employment Matters

MTB’s employment law department provides clear, concise advice to employers across Ireland and in Britain. We assist employers in ensuring that they comply with the requirements imposed upon them by ever evolving and complex legislation. The firm has vast experience delivering comprehensive advice on all aspects of employment law and our employment lawyers have been involved in some of the leading cases in Northern Ireland employment law.
