Workplace Relations Bill

Proposed changes to the Organisation of Working Time Act, contained in the new Workplace Relations Bill, will have financial implications for employers.


The Bill includes a provision which will amend section 19 of the 1997 Act, with the effect that in the case of an employee absent on certified sick leave they will be entitled to annual leave as if they had been present at work., Their leave will accrue during the leave year, or within six months of the leave year, or, where the employee was unable to take any annual leave in that leave year due to certified sick leave, within a 15-month period from the end of that leave year. If this bill is enacted into law it will have a significant cost impact for employers, particularly SMEs, who may have employees returning from long term sick-leave who will have accrued paid annual leave.
