Under Irish law, all employment contracts must state the pension
contributions/benefits if any.
The laws governing pensions, pension schemes, pension contributions and pensions benefits for part time workers in Ireland have changed greatly since 2001 and now make contributing to a pension scheme both attractive and easy for employees.
