S.I. No. 509 of 2012.
SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED CONTRIBUTIONS AND INSURABILITY) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 2) (MISCELLANEOUS AMENDMENTS) REGULATIONS 2012
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
These Regulations provide for a number of miscellaneous amendments to the Social Welfare (Consolidated Contributions and Insurability) Regulations 1996 as a consequence of the abolition of certain schemes and changes to the operation of other schemes. In particular, these Regulations provide for various amendments arising from—
- the transfer of administrative responsibility for certain employment and community services from FÁS to the Department of Social Protection; and
- the abolition of the Infectious Diseases Maintenance Allowance scheme.
In addition, the penalties for contraventions of certain provisions contained in these Regulations are aligned with those provided for in section 257(a) of the Social Welfare Consolidation Act 2005.
