(Division of Tribunal)
Chairman: Ms D. Donovan B.L.
Members: Mr J. Browne
Ms S. Kelly
heard this appeal at Carlow on 19th March 2015
Appellant: In person
Respondent: AB Jordan, Solicitors, College Street, Carlow
The director of the respondent company did not dispute that the appellant’s employment terminated by reason of redundancy.
The appellant sought a redundancy payment from the respondent company but when this was not received he subsequently lodged a claim with the Tribunal on 8 April 2014. It was the appellant’s evidence that he worked three days per week from the time he commenced employment.
The Tribunal finds that reasonable cause exists to allow for the extension of time for the claim from 52 weeks to 104 weeks under the Redundancy Payments Acts, 1967 to 2007.
The Tribunal finds that the appellant is entitled to a lump sum payment under the Redundancy Payments Acts, 1967 to 2007, based on the following criteria:
Date of Commencement: 17 January 1998
Date of Termination: 16 March 2013
Gross Weekly Pay: €216.00
This award is made subject to the appellant having been in insurable employment under the Social Welfare Acts during the relevant period.
