Security Industry - Joint Labour Committee

Security Industry ERO update  - 17 January 2022

In July 2021, three security firms, obtained a High Court injunction inter alia restraining the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment from introducing the Employment Regulation Order, the proposals for which the Labour Court had recommended to the Minister.

As a result of a settlement agreement reached in December 2021, the ERO as approved by the Minister and the Labour Court’s decision to adopt the proposals have been quashed and the matter has been remitted back to the Labour Court by the High Court. The terms of the Order of the High Court can be viewed here
