Enda Kenny change the law and allow Paris Bakery Workers access the money owed to them
Paris Bakery workers have been left high and dry because the owners refuse to formally wind up their business or pay up. As a result they cannot access the Insolvency Fund, their last chance of getting what is owed to them.
Workers in similar situations face the same problem, which is grossly unjust. Enda Kenny as leader of the government has the power to change it. If enough of us put pressure on the Taoiseach we can get him to act quickly to make it possible to change the law and allow access to the Insolvency Fund.
Dear Mr Kenny
Workers, such as the Paris Bakery workers, abandoned by failed business owners need your protection. It is grossly unjust and clearly wrong that the law allows employers to walk away from their obligations without formally winding up the business.
As a result, workers who have not been paid cannot access the Insolvency Fund and their employers freely walk away from their responsibilities. As leader of the government you have the power to change this situation.
I am asking you to open up the Insolvency Payment Scheme to the Paris Bakery Workers, and other workers, in cases where their employers cease trading and walk away from their obligations, without formally winding up the business. I am also asking you to urgently change the law to hold company directors liable for failing to pay workers their rightful wages and entitlements.
I look forward to hearing from you in the coming days.
