Tusla, the Child and Family Agency has various legal engagements across its operations, most often in the Courts on care and other matters, for example judicial reviews, or as witnesses. If there is a need for representation that is related in some way to a person's current or past employment, it is not unprecedented for employers to provide support in this regard.  It can be expected that such support is assessed on a case by case basis by those involved, and a person may, depending on the circumstances and if they wish, engage their own representation.
