29 Scheme and matching up to 10 per week. As of June 30, 2008, employers are not required to pay pension contributions to companies that are either new to the sector or who change jobs in the sector and refuse a personal pension contribution of at least 5.00 per week. After your registration date, the ICJC reviewed existing pension plans under the EIA in collaboration with employers for new tasks as part of automatic registration. It has made changes to the AIC to preserve the current benefits of the EA in a way that also helps employers meet their automatic registration obligations. Overall, the new regulations mean that workers contribute at least 5.00 per week and the employer also contributes at least 5.00 per week. If a worker contributes more than the minimum (voluntary or under the new plan), the employer must align an additional operational contribution up to a total employer contribution from the first week. The appeals and disciplinary procedures WR22 and WR23 The agreement contains detailed procedures for handling complaints and discipline that have been updated to reflect the requirements of the revised ACAS Code of Conduct in 2009. Employers should be aware that non-compliance with procedures could lead to the automatic finding of unfair dismissal in an employment tribunal, with an increase of up to 25% of each award. I hope that the new procedures of the agreement will be clear, but employers will be encouraged to seek specialized advice if in doubt. ACAS offers a free advice line for employers ().
27 The applicants were employed by Inex under the Joint Construction Industry Council (“ICJC”) employment contract for the construction industry – a national agreement approved by the ICJC. The agreement provided that workers could be temporarily dismissed “if the work is temporarily interrupted or not provided by the employer.” In the event of dismissal, staff would receive compensation for a limited period of time and would then have to register as available to work in the local employee`s employment centre. 16 WR6 Shift work is a situation in which each 24-hour period is regularly followed by at least 16 hours. This often occurs in road or highway maintenance contracts, which require continuous coverage or ongoing coverage. A typical situation could be that one gang of activists work from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and another gang from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
If there were a regular third band from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., the third band would be considered a night worker and would fall within the scope of WR.7, which will be dealt with in the next section. The layout covered by the WR6 is sometimes called a double-day stratum and sometimes in rotation. The double age layer detracts from two bands that regularly work two separate teams. The term “rotation” concludes that there is some rotation between morning and afternoon shifts. Premium payments under WR6 are the same for both plans.
