In February, we continued with our Lunch and Learn Series of Seminars which we hold in conjunction with the University of Limerick. The second seminar in the series was an Employment Law and Practice Update and covered topical issues in the 21st century workplace.
We also gave an employment law presentation on The Protected Disclosures Act 2014 and Data Protection Issues in the Workplace to the Shannon Chamber HR Forum on 12th February 2015. HOMS were also pleased to be the lead sponsor of the Shannon Chamber lunch event held at Dromoland Castle on 26th February 2015 at which the keynote speaker was Martin Shanahan, Chief Executive of IDA Ireland.
