Written answers (Question to Minister for Enterprise)

The individual concerned has received a Determination from the Employment Appeals Tribunal under the Payment of Wages Act 1991. That Determination may be enforced as if it were an order of the Circuit Court made in civil proceedings by the judge of the Circuit Court for the place wherein the person in whose favour the decision or determination was made ordinarily resides.

The individual concerned has also received a Determination from the Employment Appeals Tribunal under the Terms of Employment (Information) Acts 1994 and 2001. He has a right to seek an enforcement order from the District Court in respect of that Determination if it has not been complied with and can also contact the National Employment Rights Authority (NERA) for assistance in relation to enforcement of this Determination.
