In Ireland, employers HAVE to obey the employment laws... workers unions and government groups ensure that the laws are enforced... no quibble.

This is sad. Why write laws if they are not going to be enforced? I would call the 800 numbers of the attorneys who have TV shows to see if they will try a few cases and bring attention to the violation of the law.
