Employment matters: How much is too much to know?
Vetting practices which are considered standard practice abroad can be illegal here
Invasive and broad-ranging employment vetting practices are often common in other jurisdictions, and some employers establishing in Ireland are surprised to find that such practices are subject to legal constraints here.
There is no specific mechanism for carrying out a criminal check on an employee in Ireland. However, there is a legal requirement for Garda vetting before certain positions can be taken up, where the candidate will be working with children or vulnerable adults.
