Many of us are aware of the valuable contribution that FAS Community Employment schemes have brought to communities throughout the the country.
I know of at least three CE schemes where supervisors are still employed by FAS where these people have gone way past the statutory retirement age of 60 and 65. Infact I am aware of one supervisor in Co. Galway who is in his late 70's and still drawing a salary from FAS. I would like to ask the question why special provisions made by FAS to allow these people to comtinue on long after the Statutory Retirement Age?.
I would also like to know who appoints these supervisors and what qualifications you need to qualify.
