What to expect from a NERA Inspection

There is no need to fear NERA if your systems are in place

Depending on the number of employees you have, and the quality of the records and systems that you currently keep a NERA inspection can last anywhere between 2 to 3 hours to 2-3days. When a NERA inspection is taking place the inspector may;

  • Request to speak to the person or people who are in charge of record keeping and updating
  • They will ask to see your current outlined process for disciplinary & grievance procedures
  • Request to examine records in order to ensure that everything is compliant in the eyes of the law, copies of the records may be taken away
  • Pay, deductions, working hours, overtime etc. will be reviewed to ensure your employees are receiving their full entitlements under Irish Law
  • Interviews may be scheduled with current or recently left employees
  • They will notify you of any non compliancy issues that they have identified and will give you a timeframe by which you must bring these non-conformances in line with legislative requirements
