An application was received in Scope Section on 15 April 2019 seeking a decision with regard to the employed/self-employed status of the individual named by the Deputy.

A Scope investigation was opened on 17 April 2019 and was referred to a Social Welfare Inspector on 29 April 2019 to interview the parties concerned. These investigations are currently underway. Once the investigation is complete the matter will be decided by a Deciding Officer and the person concerned will be notified of the outcome, in writing, without delay.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
