Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation

General Scheme of the Right to Request Remote Work Bill 2022: Discussion (Resumed)

Ms Patricia King:

As I said in response to Senator Gavan, our view is that it should be 13 weeks, which is what is stipulated in the Minimum Notice and Terms of Employment Act 1973 and which is used in other employment Acts. A period of 26 weeks is long and we think that 13 weeks would be reasonable.
