Complaint seeking adjudication by the Workplace Relations Commission under section 6 of the Payment of Wages Act, 1991
24th May 2016
Date of Adjudication Hearing: 3rd August 2016
Workplace Relations Commission Adjudication Officer: Kevin Baneham
On the 24th May 2016, the complainant referred a complaint to the Workplace Relations Commission pursuant to the Payment of Wages Act. The complaint was scheduled for adjudication on the 3rd August 2016.
At the time the adjudication was scheduled to commence, it became apparent that there was no appearance by or on behalf of the complainant. I verified that he was on notice of the adjudication. I also waited for some time to accommodate any late arrival. When there was still no appearance by or on behalf of the complainant, I proceeded with the adjudication in his absence. The respondent was represented at the adjudication by a company director.
In accordance with Section 41(4) of the Workplace Relations Act, 2015 following the referral of the complaint to me by the Director General, I inquired into the complaint and gave the parties an opportunity to be heard by me and to present to me any evidence relevant to the complaint.
Attendance at the Hearing:
A general operative
A company providing internal fit-outs of retail outlets
Complainant’s Submission and Presentation:
None as there was no appearance by or on behalf of the complainant.
Respondent’s Submission and Presentation:
The company director attended to reply to the complaint.
Findings and reasoning:
None as the complaint fails for want of prosecution.
Section 41(4) of the Workplace Relations Act 2015 requires that I make a decision in relation to the complaint in accordance with the relevant redress provisions under Schedule 6 of that Act.
As there was no appearance by or on behalf of the complainant, the complaint fails for want of prosecution.
