heard this appeal at Ennis on 27th May 2014

No legal representation
The decision of the Tribunal was as follows:-
The appellant claimed that his employment, which commenced on 3 June 2008, ended by reason of redundancy on 1 November 2012. His gross weekly pay was €288.75 for a reduced working week.
KB (human resources) and GOS (general manager) attended on behalf of the respondent at the hearing. The Tribunal was told that the respondent had thought that the appellant had been on carer’s leave at the end of his employment with the respondent and that the appellant was, therefore, not entitled to redundancy. The appellant acknowledged that he had been looking after his elderly father but maintained that this was not incompatible with his work for the respondent such that the appellant believed he was entitled to a redundancy lump sum. No other argument was made for the respondent against the appellant having an entitlement to a redundancy lump sum.
Under the Redundancy Payments Acts, 1967 to 2007, the Tribunal finds that the appellant is entitled to a redundancy lump sum based on the following details:
Date of birth: --
Date of commencement: 03 June 2008
Date of termination: 01 November 2012
Gross weekly pay: €288.75
This award is made subject to the appellant having been in insurable employment under the Social Welfare Acts during the relevant period.
