INMO Welcome HSE Clarification on Ophelia Time 20.10.17
Press Release

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO), today, welcomed the written confirmation by the HSE National Director for HR that staff who adhered to the red weather warning last Monday, in respect of Hurricane Ophelia, will not be docked pay or expected to offset annual leave against the day.

The organisation had indicated, in a public statement on Tuesday, that it would not tolerate any employer deducting pay from staff or offsetting their leave against the day.  

Welcoming the HSE decision, David Hughes, INMO Deputy General Secretary said that it represented a common sense approach, which had been advocated by the Taoiseach himself and  is most welcome.  
“A lot of lessons have been learned from how Hurricane Ophelia was handled and in respect of employment rights, the government must, in future, make it clear that when they call for public adherence to the stay at home message, they must equally make it clear that the day amounts to the equivalent of a public holiday.”
