Ireland's Pensions Board has published its Review of the Construction Federation Operatives Pension Scheme (CFOPS).

A significant number of the construction industry's 70,000 self-employed workers are registered as such to allow large firms to circumvent their pension obligations, while firms are also avoiding paying contributions for another 15,000 directly employed staff.
