The Scope section of this Department made decisions in relation to the insurability status of two individuals employed by Globetech in November 2016.  The decisions ruled both individuals to be employed under a contract of service (employee status) and insurable at PRSI Class A.

These decisions were not appealed by the company.  Employee status was then applied to all other individuals employed by the company under the same terms and conditions.

As the company complied with the determinations with the employees being reclassified and their situation regularised with the Revenue Commissioners, the matter was resolved.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
