The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton T.D. today [Thursday] stated that he intends to bring forward legislation to address the recent Supreme Court ruling that struck down Registered Employment Agreements.
The Minister said “Last month, the Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional the framework for Registered Employment Agreements as provided for in the 1946 Industrial Relations Act. This is an important issue for many employers and their employees particularly in relation to rates of pay and tendering for contracts. I intend as soon as possible to put in place legislation that will be fully informed by the Supreme Court judgment, but will introduce a revised framework to deal with these matters”.
