     Title: New Catering Sector JLC

Since 29th June 09 the two Catering JLC's - Dublin/Dun Laoghaire and "Remainder of the Country" have been synchronised so that the same terms and conditions apply to catering businesses throughout the country.  

 



Since 29th June 09 the two Catering JLC's - Dublin/Dun Laoghaire and "Remainder of the Country" have been synchronised so that the same terms and conditions apply to catering businesses throughout the country. These JLC's apply to restaurants, some take-a-ways, café's and pubs serving food. It was originally planned to have just one JLC but plans to merge the two agreements have been temporarily postponed.

 

The major focus for many employers has been on the introduction of a new rate for Sunday work country wide, which is now Time and 1/3. However there are some other points, which have received less attention, but which we at Resolve HR feel employers should note:

 

 

In particular the Sick Pay scheme has implications for employers as any employee with over two years service is now entitled to three weeks basic pay (less social welfare entitlements) as sick pay every year, with part time employees having a pro-rata entitlement.
