Equality ruling favours foreign workers

COMPANIES who employ foreign workers face the prospect of substantial compensation claims after one employer was ordered by the Equality Tribunal to pay €290,000 to 58 staff because it did not translate work contracts.

Dublin-based Goode Concrete said it will challenge the tribunal’s ruling in favour of its staff, which was published yesterday.

Each of the workers was granted €5,000 on the grounds their contracts and safety documents were not produced in their own language or translated by an independent party.

Now that a precedent has been set let the flood of claims begin.
