Subsidiary employment regulations

Print page

Subsidiary employments are employments that are considered secondary, for insurance purposes, to the principal employment. Since April 1991 the following categories of employees are covered by the subsidiary employment regulations:

  • civil and public servants, paying Class B, C, D or H in their fulltime employment, who take up additional employments,
  • people who are employed as attendants at or in connection with examinations held by the Department of Education and Science,
  • people who are employed as returning officers at elections or referenda, and
  • members of the FCA or Slua Muiri who are employed for 21 consecutive days or less.

Class J applies to employment of a subsidiary nature regardless of how much people earn from this type of employment. (However, under the provisions of SI 83/92, members of FCA or Slua Muiri who are employed for a period of 21 days or less are not insurable).
