Horse Racing Ireland have announced the publication of an Employment Guide for the Racing & Breeding Industry – a comprehensive resource of good employment practices produced in conjunction with the Workplace Relations Commission.

A working group of industry bodies, including the Irish Racehorse Trainers Association, the Irish Stablestaff Association, and the Irish Thoroughbred Breeders Association, worked collaboratively on the Guide over the past 12 months, with the assistance of the Workplace Relations Commission. The document comprehensively sets out and explains the responsibilities of employers and the rights of employees under various relevant legislation.

This Guide will be kept up to date with any relevant changes to employment legislation and will inform the content for all relevant training programmes for employers within the industry.

The guide can be viewed online, or downloaded for offline use, by clicking on the link below:
