    Default Need For An Employers Register Of Employees

    Employers, IMO after having seen several sleeveen ones in action should have to maintain an employee register open for all to see containing such details as 1 Number of employees 2 Number Full-time vs Part-time 3 Irish and British as a proportion of their workforce 4 Number on minimum wage and a few gradations upwards 5 Number officially unionised 6 Any on internships/Jobbridge/ FAS placements and percentage in recent past on such schemes who got Full-time employment there 7 Job agency staff employed 8 number of officially disabled workers
    The general public and other organisations can then use this as a factor in deciding whether or not to deal with the organisation in question! If you have nothing to hide, there should be no problem!
    In case somebody attacks me of an apparent racist point in number 3, well in this day and age if they didn't have a few foreign workers that should also indicate that the organisation is probably best avoided also, the same IMO if it had 100% non Irish/British workers there (unless it's the local Borzas)!
    There has to be some barrier placed on unscrupulous employers to stop them acting the bollex, there's none at present really!

    I doubt that such a database would have a substantial impact on people's behaviour. It is generally obvious which companies employ mostly part-time, minimum wage, foreign employees. That doesn't stop people from engaging with these businesses.

    Employment equality legislation exists to stop employers "acting the bollex". If you think this is insufficient, then whistleblower legislation may help reduce the risk of exploitation (if this doesn't exist already).

    Another important thing for the world to know is if pay cuts have been enforced on employees and to what extent!

    Calling for and maintaining such documents is a way in which the becoming much hated trade union movement can save its soul!

    No it does not. A database for use by Revenue or Social welfare perhaps for helping in the fight to eliminate fraud. But a nosey parkers charter like this is daft. Sorry.
    Stand there in silence, look up to the sky and remember how brave they were.

    Private business between an employer and employee. No business of yours or anyone else for that matter.

    There is of course one massive thing in the Irsh psyche which would militate against it and that is our national characteristic of exploitation and abuse towards those we perceive as weaker than ourselves, so we would actively support ass holes abusing workers to get bargains!

    Do I not have a right to information on which to base my decision to engage with a business or not! How do you suggest we curtail ass hole employers?
