John Forde Advisory & Support Services

With over 30 years experience we will focus on giving you sound, practical and clear advice.

Always pro-active we will focus on individual client needs always keeping the ultimate goal in mind.

We will help you to ensure that your business is fully compliant with all the employment law requirements.

Being compliant and prepared for possible checks by NERA; (the National Employment Rights Authority) is good for both business efficiency and staff well being.

Ignorance of your statutory obligations is not an acceptable excuse. Get the paperwork and the systems right. We will help you with the provision of documentation and compliance checks.


Early advice and intervention may resolve impending conflict, rather than trying to manage the fallout from problems later.

And if third party intervention is unavoidable i.e. Rights Commissioners or a Tribunal we will give you representation.


We also offer independent investigation of allegations related to disciplinary matters or bullying to the highest standards of fair procedure.

We can assist with mediation or arbitration if required.
