S.I. No. 630 of 2005.
European Communities (Protection of Employees (Employers' Insolvency)) Regulations 2005
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
These Regulations transpose into Irish law Directive 2002/74/EU of 23 September 2002 amending Council Directive 80/987/EEC concerning the protection of employees in the event of insolvency of their employer. The Regulations amend the Protection of Employees (Employers' Insolvency) Act 1984 by including a provision to cover employees who are employed in Ireland by an employer who has become insolvent under the laws, regulations and administrative procedures of another Member State. The Regulations also extend the coverage of the Act to include additional entitlements that may be owed to employees by an insolvent employer.
