Sinéad Gibney, chief commissioner with the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, joins the podcast to discuss whether Ireland’s equality laws are fit for purpose and how the State’s decision to fight issues it eventually concedes is a drain on resources. The podcast also hears from Deirdre Malone, head of EY Law Ireland's employment team, who discusses remote working and whether moves by companies abroad to cut the pay of staff choosing to work remotely could become the norm in Ireland. And the hosts discuss the 'Wagatha Christie' trial, which started in Britain this week, and what people may be able to expect from lawyers for Colleen Rooney and Rebecca Vardy.
