Written answers (Question to Jobs)

This application was refused on 27 March 2014 as Intra-Company Transfer employment permits are considered for senior management earning a minimum annual remuneration of €40,000, key personnel earning a minimum annual remuneration of €40,000, or personnel undergoing a training programme earning a minimum annual remuneration of €30,000 provided it is adequately demonstrated that a detailed training programme will be undertaken by the transferee. It appeared from the information provided in support of this application that the transferee would be on a gross annual remuneration of less than €40,000 and would not be undertaking a training programme but instead would provide training. In accordance with Section 13 of the Employment Permits Act, the applicant sought a review of this decision and I understand that further information has recently been sought by my Department that may assist in consideration of this review. On receipt of this information the matter will receive further attention.
