People Applying For Positions On State Boards Asked To Sign Declaration That There Is Nothing Controversial On Their Social Media
People applying for positions on State Boards are being asked to sign a declaration that there is nothing controversial on their social media.
The Irish Independent reports that the Public Appointments Service is asking for a self-declaration, that there is nothing on the public record or social media, that could negatively impact their appointment.
The service has hired a company to carry out pre-employment checks.
It comes after controversial twitter posts lead the Minister Eamon Ryan to cancel appointing a proposed chairman of the Shannon Group earlier this year.
