The following information has been compiled to assist our members, and the wider sector, in running their organisation throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This service is administered by the expert team in Adare Human Resource Management, one of Ireland’s leading providers of Employment Law, Industrial Relations and best practice HR Management.
