Probation Act

A MAN who was receiving Jobseeker's Allowance and failed to notify the Department of Social and Family Affairs when he got a job, was given the benefit of the Probation Act.

Stephen Burke, 26, Greenmore Park, Rosslare Harbour was charged with failing to inform the social welfare authorities of the change in his circumstances between March and June 2006. State Solicitor Kevin Doherty said he had repaid the full amount of €2,210 which he received during that time. 'He agreed a payment schedule and he honoured it', he said.
