Wexford TD and Minister of State for Law Reform James Browne has welcomed the news that 32 Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection workers have started working in Johnstown Castle, Wexford town.
On Monday 32 civil servants started dealing with pandemic unemployment payment-related matters.
Minister Browne commented,
“I’m glad to see the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection create an additional section, which will be based in Johnstown Castle. The pandemic unemployment payment has been a vital source of income for thousands of County Wexford people. Given that the payment will continue to be paid until April 2021, there remains a great deal of administration work to be done.”
“I wish every success to these hard-working Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection workers and I’m glad to see the Department recognise the hard-working ability of County Wexford civil servants”,
Minister Browne concluded.
