ISOLAS launches its Employment Law Handbook

18/04/2012 Peter Isola, Samantha Grimes

ISOLAS today launched its Gibraltar Employment Law Handbook at a breakfast briefing event held at their offices in Portland House this morning.

At a heavily attended event, a large number of executives practising in this area, heard Samantha Grimes delivering a refresher on managing the disciplinary procedure, a part of employment law practice which often comes under scrutiny in unfair dismissal and other, equally important, matters for employees and employers alike.

Following a question and answer session Christian Rocca, the author of the handbook, said a few words about the first edition, explaining that for some time it had been apparent that the local industry was keen on seeing a publication of this nature being made available. ‘I the response to this event is anything to go by, the book seems to have arrived bang on time!’

The handbook covers a variety of issues from hiring and firing to the annual holiday, public holidays and sick pay. Issues of working time, maternity and, importantly, termination are all covered in what attendees at the event described as an ‘impressive’ publication.

The book is available to all businesses in Gibraltar. Those wishing to secure a copy should contact ISOLAS or pop into our reception to pick up a copy.

ISOLAS is excited about this new publication and looks forward to continuing to review changes in this very dynamic area of legal development in consultation with the industry to bring further updated editions as they become relevant.
