Public Holidays or Bank Holidays

With three of our nine Irish public holidays coming up in the next few weeks, it is vital that employers are aware of their obligations in this area. You may be surprised to hear that this is one area where many employers actually overpay employees as they do not fully understand the legislation.

If you are already a Paycheck Plus customer you can tick this off your list of concerns as we look after this for you, but if you are not, you may be incurring unnecessary expenses in this area.
