The Right To Request Remote Working Bill and Irish businesses

What does the National Remote Working Strategy mean for employers?

The Right to Request Remote Work Bill 2021 is part of the government’s vision to make remote working a permanent feature of Ireland’s workforce – economically, socially and environmentally.
But what will it mean for Irish businesses in practice? Can the hybrid or remote workplace really work for everyone? And what can employers do if it won’t?
Join us on March 10th when Clodagh O’Donovan of Advance HR discusses the National Remote Working Strategy, what it means for employers, and steps to consider taking before the Bill becomes law.
Clodagh will give an overview of the National Remote Working Strategy, including:
      • what is the Right To Request Remote Working Bill;
      • what does it mean for Irish employers;
      • grounds for businesses in Ireland to decline remote working requests; and
      • 5 steps to consider before the Bill becomes law.

She will also touch on upcoming workplace changes, including sick pay, and discuss how best to stay onside of the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).

Clodagh will speak as part our online morning briefing on March 10th at 10am: Getting Back to Business – Planning for Greener Pastures in 2022 and Beyond.
