Some Work Life Balance or Family Friendly working arrangements are regulated under Irish legislation. In other words they are statutory entitlements. Some of these also attract a social welfare payment. Links to the relevant legislation are listed below.

Other arrangements are non-statutory, i.e. they are agreed between the employer and employees. These may be regulated by a workplace policy or collective agreement or policy, but are not legal entitlements.

  • Protection of Employees (Part-Time Work)
  • Organisation of Working Time Act
  • Maternity Protection Act
  • Parental Leave Act
  • Adoptive Leave Act
