There are 5 claims which can be broadly categorised under a heading of “terms and conditions of employment”, which can be the subject of claims to the Workplace Relations Commission.
Here they are:
- You did not receive a written statement of your terms of employment
Section 3 of the Terms of Employment (Information) Act, 1994 provides that an employer must give you a statement within 2 months of starting employment.
- You weren’t notified in wiring of a change to your terms of employment
Section 5 of the Terms of Employment (Information) Act, 1994 covers this and provides that an employer advise you in writing of any such change within 1 month.
- Your employer is not keeping statutory employment records
S.I. No. 36/2012 – European Communities (Road Transport) (Organisation of Working Time of Persons Performing Mobile Road Transport Activities) Regulations 2012 covers this. The employer must keep a written record of the working pattern, breaks, etc. of a mobile worker.
- You were not told by the employer about the working hours regulations applicable to the road transport sector
Regulation 11 of SI 36/2012 stipulates the obligation in this regard.
- You work in mobile transport and your employer won’t give you records of your hours worked
Regulation 12 of SI 36/2012 covers this obligation.
