ERB Monitor 5May 2010
Welcome to the first ERB Monitor edition for 2010, the e-newsletter of the Community Sector Employers Forum (CSEF) keeping you informed on essential employment law issues.
In this edition we look at some of the important HRM issues of the day which need to be considered by managers. The first article looks at the increasing requirement placed on managers to manage stress in the workplace. Given the turbulence experienced in the sector over recent months, it might be a good time to consider some of the long term effects from the strains and stresses that both managers and employees have endured.
The second article examines how organisations can get the most out of their existing workforce through upskilling and training in the context of reduced funding and a smaller workforce.
The third article sets out some practical precautions for employers who are renewing temporary contracts. Many employers in the community sector offer contracts on a fixed term basis but need to understand that they cannot continue to offer such contracts indefinitely.
The final article looks at two recent determinations by both the Equality Tribunal and the Labour Court on gender discrimination. They highlight the fact that while significant progress has been made, the issues of gender and pregnancy related discrimination haven’t completely gone away.
