Written Answers - Redundancy Payments.
Mr. Penrose Mr. Penrose
98. Mr. Penrose asked the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment if an application for redundancy on behalf of a person (details supplied) in County Westmeath, has been received in his Department; the position with regard to this application; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26140/05]
Mr. Killeen Mr. Killeen
Mr. Killeen: Although my Department has received an application for a statutory redundancy lump sum payment from the person in question, the redundancy certificate form which is part of the application has not been signed by her former employer. In order to establish her right to a statutory redundancy payment, she would therefore have to take a case to the Employment Appeals Tribunal against her former employer. The tribunal, which holds hearings throughout the country, provides a fair, inexpensive and informal means for resolving such disputes. The telephone number of the tribunal is 01 6313005, LoCall: 1890 220 222.
If the tribunal rules in favour of the applicant, establishing her right to a redundancy payment, my Department will then be in a position to com plete the processing of her claim and to pay her the full amount due to her as soon as possible.
