A new Contract Cleaning Employment Regulation Order was signed into effect by Damien English, Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment on 18th December 2020. This was following the adoption by the Labour Court of proposals made by the Joint Labour Committee for the sector. This has a number of different impacts on the sector including increasing the hourly rate of pay to employees. Members should apprise themselves of the changes within the new ERO.
