Department of Health
Voluntary Sector Remuneration
759. To ask the Minister for Health when section 39 pay alignment with HSE salary scales will be implemented as has been implemented in section 38 organisations; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6393/20]
The employees of section 38 organisations are classified as public servants and therefore, the employer is obliged to adhere to the salary scales as set out in the Department of Health consolidated salary scales.
Section 39 organisations, however, are private sector employers and are therefore not required to adhere to these salary scales. It is a matter for the individual employer to determine the terms and conditions of employment, including rates of pay, for its employees.
