An Assessment of the Cumulative Impact of Proposed Measures to Improve Working Conditions in Ireland

The Irish Government Economic and Evaluation Service (IGEES) has published ‘An Assessment of the Cumulative Impact of Proposed Measures to Improve Working Conditions in Ireland’.

This assessment has been carried out by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment, in conjunction with the Department of Social Protection, in line with a recommendation from the National Competitiveness and Productivity Council (NCPC) in its report Ireland’s Competitiveness Challenge 2022.

This assessment examines the cumulative impact of measures including auto-enrolment retirement savings, parent’s leave and benefit, statutory sick pay (SSP), additional public holiday, the transition to a living wage, and the right to request remote working.
