Written answers (Question to Business)

I understand that in the specific case referred to by the deputy, an unfair dismissal case was lodged with the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) in 2013. The case was subsequently heard on 24 October 2014 and the EAT determination issued to the parties on 20 November 2014.

I must advise the deputy however that once the determination of the Employment Appeals Tribunal issues, the Tribunal has no further function in the matter.

The mechanism for enforcing determinations of the Employment Appeals Tribunal generally involves an application to the Circuit Court for an order directing compliance, or instituting proceedings in the District Court.

As I understand it, the collection of any monies outstanding in respect of a Circuit Court order is the responsibility of the relevant County Sheriff.
