Murphy announces parity for agency workers

1 Mins read

Finance Minister Conor Murphy has announced that agency workers within the Civil Service will soon benefit from parity of pay and annual leave.

Conor Murphy highlighted the enhanced entitlements as a tender for a new contract was advertised seeking suppliers for the provision of agency workers to the Civil Service Departments and their Non Departmental Public Bodies.

Announcing parity for agency workers, Minister Murphy said: “As is the case in many organisations, agency workers play a key role in the Civil Service and the delivery of services. Under this new contract, agency workers will have parity with Civil Service permanent colleagues in terms of pay, annual leave and paid time off for medical and dental appointments from day one.

“The Civil Service is committed to looking after the health and wellbeing of all those working in the NICS. I believe these enhanced arrangements for agency workers demonstrate our commitment to workers’ rights.”
