Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience. I am reviewing your question now for you.
Thank you for your patience. While agency workers do not have all the same employment rights as regular workers, under the EU Directive on Temporary Agency Work which was transposed into Irish legislation by the Protection of Employees (Temporary Agency Work) Act 2012 temporary agency workers have the right to equal treatment in basic working and employment conditions. The unfair dismissals act also means you have addition protection and from what you have said I believe this will be the Act you ought to rely on to sue DHL.
Whether you can sue DHL and still leave the agency out of your Claim will depend on which rights you are seeking to enforce. From what you have explained I suspect you are disgruntled by how you have been told to stop work suddenly without proper investigation and without a fair process being followed. Unfair dismissal sounds your best cause of action and Under the unfair dismissals legislation, the employer is the person for whom the employee actually works rather than the agency. Compliance with health and safety requirements is also the responsibility of the person or organisation for whom the agency worker is actually working. So without much delay you must consider taking action in the tribunal. You will need an address still in Ireland for service of court documents so if you are back in Slovakia and no plans to return you should try and get a lawyer who is happy to represent you whilst you are outside the country.Any ollow up please do not hesitate to send your message. Glad to guide further. All the best,
Thank you for your further message, I totally understand how frustrated you are. Ofcourse when you want a call next week let me know and I will ask for the offer toi be sent to you at that time.
Hi no problem at all. All the best.
good morming, thank you for your message. I will ask for the call offer to be made to you by customer services. It is a fixed fee for the single call and you use that call to ask everything you need to cover n the issue. We do not get to call you back another time. If you then decide to engage a lawyer to represent you then yes you get a local lawyer in Ireland to represent you as we don't represent.
Hi, thank you for your message. You will be charged straight away yes and you should be able to pay using a different from of payment from what you used before but you should check with customer services if you have any difficulty because that is not something I get involved with regrettably.
Hi thank you very much for your messages. I am very sorry but these did not filter to me earlier. Please give me a time to call you tomorrow and I will call you then.
