I propose to take Questions Nos. 234 and 235 together.
The Terms of Employment (Information) Act, 1994 provides that an employer must provide his/her employee with a written statement of the particulars of the employee’s terms of employment. It also provides that an employer must notify the employee of any changes in the particulars as given in the statement. The Act provides a right of complaint to the Workplace Relations Commission where an employer fails to provide a written statement in accordance with the terms of the Act or fails to notify the employee of changes to the particulars contained in the statement. The right to search is not a matter which comes within the information required under the Terms of Employment (Information) Act, 1994.
I trust this clarifies matters for the Deputy.
