supervalu 2People Matters represented our company in defending an Unfair Dismissal Claim at the WRC and from the outset ensured everything was covered. The submission compiled was comprehensive, accurate and very clear on all facts. The advice provided throughout the process and at the hearing demonstrated an indepth knowledge of the relevant legislation and led to a successful outcome on our behalf. We would highly recommend People Matters for WRC representations.
