High Court Settlement Update
As many of you will know, there have been numerous delays in implementing the terms of the Consultant High Court Settlement from June 2018. As per the terms of the Settlement, eligible Consultants ought to have been transitioned to the corrected salary scale from the beginning of this year, and the first tranche of back pay should have been paid on 1st June.
In many cases, this has not happened.
As a result, the IMO’s legal team appeared before Judge Ni Raifeartaigh this morning seeking liberty to bring a Motion to the Court at the end of the first week of the new legal term in October to press the HSE to comply with the Terms of Settlement in respect of the Litigating Consultants.
Judge Ni Raifeartaigh has granted the plaintiffs permission to bring such Motions as may be required should matters remain outstanding at the end of the first week of the new legal term.
The IMO’s legal team will communicate separately with Litigating Consultants, but as Terms of Settlement are applicable to eligible, non-litigating, Consultants, it will also fall to the HSE to comply with the Terms of Settlement in respect of eligible, non-litigating Consultants.
