Claimant: Mr. Fergus Murrihy, Redundant Workers Centre, St Mary's
Adult Education Centre, Island Road, Kings Island, Limerick
Respondent: No representation listed
There was no appearance for or on behalf of the Respondent.
The Claimant worked in the Respondent as a delicatessen counter assistant. She commenced in August 2009 and ended in July 2013. The Claimant explained that the manageress gave her a letter of notice on 24th June 2013. The reason being that the landlord was going to evict the Respondent from the premises. At some point in time she left the premises and returned. She met the owner and there were two other people with him. He handed her, her p45 and rp50 redundancy form. She signed the rp50. He told her that he was unable to pay her, her redundancy. At some later time he met with her and the staff and he told them that new management had taken over the premises and that they could apply to the new management for a job.
At a later time she was informed that the restaurant had re-opened. So she called to the restaurant and saw that new staff were working there.
The Claimant gave evidence as to her loss.
There was no appearance for or on behalf of the Respondent. The Tribunal is satisfied that proper notification was sent to the Respondent. Based on the uncontested evidence of the Claimant the Tribunal determines that the claim under the Unfair Dismissals Acts, 1977 to 2007, succeeds. The Tribunal determines compensation to be the most appropriate remedy and awards the Claimant the sum of €9,500.00.
