Tipperary publican and restaurateur  is fined €500 under work law

Judge Marie Keane: fined a publican and restaurateur €500 for a breach of work permit law

A Tipperary publican and restaurant owner was fined by Nenagh Court for employing a non-national who did not have a correct work permit.

In a case taken by the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Matthew Reidy, trading as Reidy’s of Newtown, Nenagh, pleaded to the offence on June 27, 2019.

The court heard that a Workplace Relations Commission official made an unannounced visit to the premises and discovered one employee was working without a permit.

The court heard the situation had since been rectified and Mr Reidy co-operated fully.

Pat Liston, solicitor for Mr Reidy, said that once the offence had been discovered, the employee had been let go.

Judge Marie Keane fined Mr Reidy €500 under the Employment Permit Act.
