Written answers (Question to Enterprise)

On 6th November 2019, the employer (details supplied) e-mailed my officials querying if different restaurants [owned by different companies] could be brought under the one "umbrella" to allow for movement of staff between the different employers. On 11th November 2019, my officials responded requesting further information from the employer on their proposal in order to be in a position to answer the query.

Following your previous Parliamentary Question on this issue, Parliamentary Question No. 175 of 29 September 2020, my officials again contacted the employer (details supplied) to request further information on their proposal in order to assist, but no response has been forthcoming as of yet.

On 23rd November 2020, my officials sent another request for this additional information. The employer sent a holding response, saying that the information requested will be forwarded later this week.
