JLC High Court Challenge Ruling Welcomed

North Kildare Chamber has today (07/07/11) welcomed the High Court’s ruling that the JLC system is unconstitutional after a group of fast food outlets challenged the JLC system of setting wages for workers.


Allan Shine said, “The Chamber Network has continuously called for an examination of JLCs, in particular the unnecessary conditions they imposed on employment in the sectors they cover such as Sunday premium pay rates.”


“Job retention and creation is a top priority for business. Today’s ruling should have a positive impact on the Government’s plans to reform these wage setting mechanisms, and in turn help to create more jobs in the future,” Shine concluded.
