ADJUDICATION OFFICER DECISION
Adjudication Decision Reference: ADJ-00001064
Complaints for Resolution:
Complaint/Dispute Reference No.
Date of Receipt
Complaint seeking adjudication by the Workplace Relations Commission under section 6 of the Payment of Wages Act, 1991
Complaint seeking adjudication by the Workplace Relations Commission under section 27 of the Organisation of Working Time Act, 1997
Date of Adjudication Hearing: 27/04/2016
Workplace Relations Commission Adjudication Officer: Patsy Doyle
In accordance with Section 41(4) of the Workplace Relations Act, 2015, Section 27 Of the Organisation of The Working Time Act 1997 and Section 6 of the Payment Of Wages Act, 1991 following the referral of the complaints to me by the Director General, I inquired into the complaints and gave the parties an opportunity to be heard by me and to present to me any evidence relevant to the complaints.
Complainant’s Submission and Presentation:
The Complainant had lodged a complaint with the WRC that during his ten day working history with the respondent in July, 2015, he had not received 386.25 euro in wages owed and that he had not received 31.14 euro in holiday pay. The complainant stated that he worked as a cleaner for the respondent’s business on 8.65 euro per hour.
The Complainant did not attend the hearing.
Respondent’s Submission and Presentation:
The Respondent did not attend the hearing.
Section 41(4) of the Workplace Relations Act 2015 requires that I make a decision in relation to the complaints in accordance with the relevant redress provisions under Schedule 6 of that Act.
I checked that both parties had been notified of the hearing. I am satisfied that both parties were on notice of the correct time and place of the hearing.
I allowed a waiting period of 30 minutes to allow for any reasonable delay. I then commenced the hearing. As the Complainant did not attend the hearing, I must find that his case under both the Organisation of Working Time Act, 1997 and Payment of Wages Act, 1991 falls for want of prosecution.
