Counting the Cost of Legal Action15th November 2012

Are you aware that should the HSE visit (announced/unannounced) and find a “material Breach” you will be charged under the FFI Scheme?

Did you also know that should it go to court and you are acquitted you will NOT be recompensated your legal costs?
