EU Directive 2019/1152 on Transparent and Predictable Working Conditions

The Government is looking to consult stakeholders on the transposition by primary legislation of EU Directive 2019/1152 on Transparent and Predictable Working Conditions.

The EU Directive will be transposed into Irish law by August 2022. It will give Employee the right to:

  • more complete information on the essential aspects of the work, which is to be received early by the worker, in writing

  • a limit to the length of probationary periods at the beginning of a job

  • seek additional employment, with a ban on exclusivity clauses and limits on incompatibility clauses

  • know in a reasonable period in advance when work will take place – that is, for workers with very unpredictable working schedules, as in the case of on-demand work

  • to request to be transferred to a form of employment with more predictable and secure working conditions where available and receive a reasoned written reply

  • to receive mandatory training, cost-free, that is required to carry out the work for which he or she is employed
