Further to my previous reply to the Deputy, officials in my Department have been liaising with the National Shared Services Offices (NSSO) who have responsibility for pay matters generally. The NSSO has advised that payments have not been withheld from the person in question. The staff member’s salary comprises of her Temporary Remuneration Rehabilitation (TRR) payment and an Illness Benefit payment from the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection paid through the NSSO. Staff from my Department's HR Unit have been in touch with the staff member and following my request, the NSSO will also make contact with her to advise her of the position and to outline the process behind her payments generally.
