Protection of Employees (Part-time Work) Act, 2001

This Act was passed into law in December 2001. Arising from this Act, the ASTI has negotiated an agreement, as expressed in Circular Letters PPT 19/03 and 0029/2007. This Act means that part-time teachers cannot now be treated less favourably than their full-time colleagues in terms of pay, pension, promotion posts and general conditions of employment.
