(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: Mr. Simon McElwee, Joseph P. Farrell, Solicitors,
No 1 Maryborough Street, Graiguecullen, Carlow
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.
It was the appellant’s evidence that when he was initially employed he worked five days per week. In 2010 he was reduced to four days per week, subsequently to three days per week and finally to two days per week in August 2012.
In January 2014 he was informed by the director that his hours were to further reduce to eleven hours per week. The appellant did not accept these hours and sought a redundancy payment. It was submitted by the appellant’s representative that the appellant’s redundancy payment calculation should be based on three days per week.
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 Birth:
Date of Commencement: 25 January 1993
Date of Termination: 26 April 2014
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.
