    Global law firm Eversheds has launched a global, interactive app for HR and pensions professionals, the Eversheds International Employment and Pensions Law App.

    The app is available free from the App Store for use on the iPhone and via the internet. In addition to providing answers to commonly asked questions on employment law issues, covering over 25 countries and four continents, the app also provides a comprehensive guide to pensions law in each territory.

    The app provides easily accessible information in a ‘Question and Answer’ format.

    In the pensions section the app covers:

    • What pension is provided by the state; retirement date
    • Work-based pension arrangements; mandatory pension provision
    • Different benefit structures; establishing a scheme; who is responsible, how to change pension provision, members involvement
    • The statutory and regulatory framework; regulatory authority and tax status

    In the HR section the app covers:

    • Issues surrounding the life-cycle of an employment contract from engaging an employee and the employment contract itself, right through to termination of a contract.
    • Key employment terms and conditions; minimum wage, probationary period, holiday entitlement and working time.
    • Family friendly rights; maternity, paternity, and adoption leave and pay, flexible work and time off for dependants.
    • TUPE; information and consultation requirements, employees’ ability to object, and penalties for not following the correct procedure.
    • Restrictive covenants; non-solicitation, non-competition and non-dealing.
    • Atypical employment contracts; part-time contracts, fixed-term contracts and zero-hours contracts.

    Peter Fahy, Head of Eversheds Pensions Practice comments:

    "Our goal is to provide our clients with a clear and comprehensive guide to the common HR and Pensions issues, across the 25 countries in which we operate.  In Ireland, the Eversheds Employment and Pensions Law App will cover the latest changes to Pensions in Budget 2013."

    Joanne Hyde, Partner in Eversheds Employment Law practice comments:

    “This app is a significant resource for HR practitioners, providing them with detailed information at a glance and helping them to remain absolutely up to date on changes to employment law and practice.”
