Redundancy Payments Act, 1967 – Claiming Too Soon*

Redundancy Payments Act, 1967 – Claiming Too Soon

In case ADJ18522 an employee was advised that she was going to be made redundant. The notice was dated the 14th October and the employment was terminated on the 29th October 2018. The employee was advised that there would be a job available for her in March. It appears that the employee on the 3rd November wrote requesting redundancy and a P45.

If the employee even though she had started a new job on the 31st October had waited until 4 weeks had elapsed then under the provisions of Section 12 (2) of the Act the employee would have been entitled to claim redundancy. In this case it is an example of an employee seeking to claim redundancy too soon.
