The Cabinet is expected to endorse an 80 cent rise in the minimum wage today.
For the first time since the pandemic began, ministers will meet in the traditional cabinet room in Government buildings this morning.
The rise in the minimum wage will be proposed by Tánaiste Leo Varadkar, while Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe is tipped to bring forward the taxation commission's report which calls for changes to inheritance tax.
Chief Whip Jack Chambers will outline the priority legislation for this new Dáil term including 38 Government bills.
The bills include new planning legislation, abortion safe zones around hospitals, the right to request remote working and auto enrolment pensions.
But in the Dáil chamber the cost of living crisis will dominate with just two weeks to go until the budget.
Sinn Féin will press a motion on measures to help households including a cap on energy bills - although the Government won't have to adopt it.
TDs will also hear statements on impropriety found by the IBRC Commission, in its first sitting day since legislators took their summer holidays in July.
