  • Gov’t’s ‘Make Work Pay’ Not Working for Seasonal Workers – Thomas Pringle TD
    of Limerick to undertake a study on the prevalence of zero hour and low hour contracts and the impact of such contracts on employees The study has a broad scope covering both the public and private sectors with a particular focus on the retail hospitality education and health sectors As the Deputy is aware seasonal work is a particular feature of both the retail and the hospitality sector The Study will fill the gap in knowledge that currently exists in terms of the hard data and information that is available concerning the prevalence of zero hour and low hour contracts in the Irish economy It will examine how such contracts operate in practice and assess the advantages and disadvantages from the perspective of employer and employee It will also assess the current employment rights legislation as it applies to employees on such contracts The findings will enable me to make any evidence based policy recommendations to Government considered necessary on foot of the study A wide range of stakeholders have been canvassed to contribute to the study which I expect to be completed shortly The Deputy will appreciate that I cannot anticipate the outcome of the study or the Government s consideration of the study s findings Seasonal workers are often engaged on a part time basis The Protection of Employment Part Time Work Act 2001 provides robust protections for such workers It provides that a part time employee cannot be treated less favourably than a comparable full time employee regarding conditions of employment and that all employee protection legislation applies to a part time employee in the same manner as it already applies to a full time employee The Protection of Employees Fixed Term Work Act 2003 which provides that fixed term workers may not be treated less favourably than comparable permanent workers may also be of relevance in the context of seasonal workers It is worth noting that since the launch of the Action Plan for Jobs in 2012 there are almost 105 000 more people at work In 2014 alone employment increased by almost 30 000 Within this figure part time employment has shrunk by approximately 10 400 while full time employment has increased by 39 600 It is clear that the Government is succeeding in its twin track approach of creating the conditions for job growth and helping people back to work including young people in particular For example the under 25 age group had an unemployment rate of 20 3 at the end of 2014 down from a peak of 33 in early 2012 Based on current trends and projections the youth unemployment rate should fall below 20 in 2015 These positive developments have taken place against the backdrop of the Government s agenda to make work pay key elements of which include the restoration of the cut in the national minimum wage the establishment of the Low Pay Commission and the reinstatement of the Joint Labour Committee system When enacted the Industrial Relations Amendment

  • Closure of Rural Garda Stations Affects Register of Electors – Thomas Pringle TD
    a statement on the matter Thomas Pringle For WRITTEN answer on Tuesday 14th July 2015 Ref No 28861 15 REPLY Minister for the Environment Community and Local Government Deputy Alan Kelly An application for inclusion in the supplement to the register of electors must be signed by the applicant in the presence of a member of An Garda Síochána from the applicant s local Garda station who must first be satisfied as to the person s identity before signing dating and stamping the form The Garda may request photographic or other identification Where the applicant establishes in writing that he is unable to progress the application in this way the form can be signed by the applicant in the presence of an official of the registration authority who is satisfied as to his or her identity Again photographic or other identification may be required If neither option is viable due to physical illness or physical disability the application form must be accompanied by a medical certificate Most applications for entry on the supplement are made in a relatively short period of time close to a polling event Registration authorities have less opportunity therefore than they have at the annual revision of the register to make the necessary enquiries about an application The provisions regarding verification of applications for entry on the supplement to the register of electors are in place to strengthen the security aspects of the supplement procedures I am satisfied that the provisions in the Electoral Act 1992 serve to assist registration authorities in processing applications for entry in the supplement I do not think that a requirement on an applicant to state in writing the reason why they are unable to get the application form signed by a Garda is unreasonable in the circumstances I consider that
