Artists and cultural workers are subject to the same labour laws as other citizens. The main legislation regarding employment in Ireland is The Terms of Employment Act (1994-2014) which requires employers to provide employees with certain information about their employment, such as a job description, a contract of employment, a defined rate of pay and hours of work. The Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (2018) brought in a ban on zero-hour contracts in most situations and provides for minimum payments and banded hours. It also forces the employer to provide employees with information on the five core terms of employment within five days of them starting work.
