Social Welfare Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second Stage (16 Oct 2019)

John Brady: I am pleased to have an opportunity to speak on the Bill. I welcome the extension of jobseeker's benefit to the self-employed. Sinn Féin supports this Bill, which has been a long time coming. Any extension of social welfare supports to the self-employed must be welcomed. The self-employed do not have access to the full suite of social welfare supports available to other workers. A...

Social Welfare Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second Stage (16 Oct 2019)

Regina Doherty: I would be surprised if the Deputy was not concerned.

Social Welfare Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second Stage (16 Oct 2019)

John Brady: When we welcome the extension of further welfare supports for the self-employed, it must be borne in mind that many employers are engaged in bogus self-employment practices. This leaves workers who are legitimate employees high and dry when it comes to accessing social welfare supports and basic workers' rights such as annual leave, sick pay and holiday pay. While many of the self-employed...

Regina Doherty: Who knew we all had so much in common?

Social Welfare Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second Stage (16 Oct 2019)

John Brady: Absolutely. It is a lonely place to be, particularly for sole traders in difficult times. I am not sure whether other Deputies have shared my experience of having to avail of social protection. The business I was operating was one of many businesses that went to the wall during the economic downturn, when the bottom fell out of the economy. Unfortunately, I had to pull down the shutters...

Social Welfare Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second Stage (16 Oct 2019)

Regina Doherty: I will respond to the two questions were asked. I assure Deputy Brady that the activation offering available to jobseekers who were self-employed is exactly the same as what is on offer to those who were employed. I also assure him that the Department follows up overpayments and underpayments in the exact same vigorous manner. He would probably use different language. When the Department...

Social Welfare Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second Stage (16 Oct 2019)

John Lahart: I wish to share time with Deputy Scanlon. Fianna Fáil will support the Bill, the purpose of which is to provide for the introduction of a new social insurance scheme to provide jobseeker's benefit for the self-employed. It will be payable to individuals who lose their self-employment and have the required number of PRSI contributions to qualify for payment. Fianna Fáil has...

Social Welfare Bill 2019 [Seanad]: Second Stage (16 Oct 2019)

Eamon Scanlon: I am delighted to speak on the Bill. I should declare that I was self-employed from 6 September 1974, 41 years ago, until the point at which I was fortunate enough that the people of Sligo-Leitrim elected me to this House. We do not really appreciate the amount of employment created by self-employed people or the amount of work they do. According to the CSO, there are more than 250,000...
