Please note 2011 Rates will no longer be in use for work done on/after 1st September 2021.
In Budget 2011, the Government announced a measure whereby ‘New Entrants’ to the public service would be employed on rates of pay which are 10% less than current rates. This is to take effect for relevant ‘New Entrant’ hourly paid staff commencing work in UCD effective from 1st September 2012.
This new rate will be applicable to anyone who has no experience of working in a similar role in the Public Sector prior to their commencing work in UCD. On the Hourly Set-up Form the hourly claimant will be asked to indicate if they have previous Public Service work experience. If they select no, they should be treated as a ‘New Entrant’ and placed on the 2011 New Entrant hourly rates. If they select yes, they will then need to complete an additional section on the online set-up form giving details of their previous experience. This will be reviewed by HR, who will determine which rate they should be paid. The claimant and the School/Unit will be notified by HR of which rate will be applicable.
