An HR and Employment Law seminar will be hosted by Caroline Reidy, manager of The HR Suite.


Local Enterprise Office Limerick will offer a range of supports for local employers over the coming months, with classes and webinars designed to help businesses bounce back from the Covid-19 pandemic by being fully aware of changes to the law, HR practices and taxation.

An HR and Employment Law seminar will be held on October 1, updating employers on the latest Covid-19 requirements, the new statutory sick pay scheme and updated HR policies. The two-hour event will be hosted by Caroline Reidy, manager of The HR Suite, an employment law expertise firm.

The seminar will also cover new codes of practice on bullying at work and the Family Leave and Miscellaneous Provisions Act.

Speaking to I Love Limerick about the seminar, Ciara Farrell, Senior Development Officer of LEO Limerick said, “Small business owners will be able to stay up to date and informed on all their requirements as employers; crucially the seminar includes a question and answers session with Caroline Reidy, who is a well-known employment adviser.”

A webinar assisting businesses in filling out a Form 11 will take place on October 5, essential for any business that has received Covid-19 payments.

Businesses can avail of one-to-one mentoring sessions with a designated LEO Limerick mentor on October 27 or November 24. 

A new SME (small business) Taskforce set up by Limerick City and County Council and Innovate Limerick has requested additional LEO Limerick advice clinics and mentoring for local businesses as they move through the stages of reopening.

Chaired by Mayor of Limerick City and Council Daniel Butler, the task force addresses the needs of small businesses and service providers in Limerick.

Mayor Daniel Butler told I Love Limerick, “As businesses re-open we understand the particular challenges small businesses face in these challenging times. We hope to develop a strategy and services around that to help businesses survive and thrive.

“This could range from simple legal advice to accounting advice and other supports. This sector is a massive employer in the region and deserves a targeted strategy and support system.”
