Deputy Michael Creed Deputy Michael Creed
Deputy Michael Creed asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment if a person (details supplied) in County Cork is entitled to statutory redundancy; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [24636/09]
Deputy Mary Coughlan Deputy Mary Coughlan
Deputy Mary Coughlan: My Department has no record of an application for statutory redundancy in the case of the individual concerned. Under the redundancy payments scheme all eligible employees are entitled to a statutory redundancy lump sum payment on being made redundant. A redundancy situation arises in general where an employee’s job no longer exists and he/she is not replaced. An employee is entitled to two weeks pay for every year of service, plus a bonus week, subject to a maximum of €600 gross weekly pay. It is up to the employer concerned in the first instance to determine whether or not in fact a redundancy situation obtains and to notify my Department using an RP 50 form which can be downloaded from the Department’s website at www.entemp.ie.
