okay this video I’m going to take a look
at the statutory leave entitlements in Ireland what are the actual statutory
the legal entitlements to leave in the workplace in Ireland let’s take a look
first at annual leave the employee is entitled to for working weeks of annual
leave he’d leave if the hours worked in the year exceeds 1 365 he or she is
entitled to one third of a working week each month in which the employee worked
in excess of 117 hours or eight percent of the hours worked in the year so you
can calculate eight percent of the hours worked in a year for a part-time
employee for example and that will give you the entitlement to paid annual leave
the employee is entitled to whichever of the calculations these methods of
calculation gives the greatest entitlement and there’s nothing to stop
an employer from giving a greater entitlement but what I’m referring to
here is the statutory legal entitlement let’s take a look at public holidays
there are nine public holidays in the year of Ireland these are commonly
called bank holidays but from a legal perspective bank holiday makes you know
no sensor isn’t really recognized as a public holiday we’re talking about every
employee is entitled to either a paid day off on the holiday or a paid day off
that month or an extra days and you leave or an extra days pay but the
entitlement will depend too on whether the employee is normally in obliged
roster to work on the public holiday so there is a bit of calculation to be done
but by and large every employee is entitled to a benefit to recognition of
each public holiday in the country and there are as I say nine public holidays
the year we move on to maternity leave them female employees entitled to 26
weeks unpaid maternity leave now she may qualify for maternity benefit from the
Department of Social Protection but that’s a matter for her on department as
opposed to the employer in addition she is entitled to an additional 16 weeks if
but is no maternity benefits titled in that period she’s also entitled to
reasonable time off for medical visits connected with the pregnancy okay
adoptive leave adoptive leave an adoptive mother is entitled to 24 weeks
consecutive weeks of unpaid leave she may qualify for adoptive benefit but
that’s a matter for her on the Department of Social Protection she may
also take an additional 16 consecutive weeks unpaid leave but with no adoptive
benefits available for that period of time carers leave Dan is employed
continuously for 12 months if employees employed continuously for 12 months then
there is an enticement to 13 weeks up to 104 weeks of unpaid least now clearly
100 / 4 weeks the two years on paid leave there a particular strict enough
requirements and in terms of the caring and who is to be cared for and so on and
so forth but that’s basically the entitlement an employee may be entitled
to carers benefit or carers allowance but again this is a matter for the
employee in question and Department of Social Protection parental leave then is
another statutory entitlement of employees
there’s an entitlement to 18 weeks of unpaid leave for each child under the
age of eight or for each child under the age of 16 if the child has a long-term
illness force majeure leaves then this is paid leave there’s no title meant in
law two three days in on a 12-month period or five days in a 36-month period
as I saying it is paid leave paternity leave then there’s two weeks paid the
240 euros per week paid leave for fathers since this teacher this is my
