Payments Made Direct To You

Once your employer has become insolvent, you decide to seek reimbursement of Wages and Salaries out of the redundancy fund.  If so, you should request from the liquidator, receiver or trustee a form which you should fill and complete. Once the form is completed, the liquidator, receiver or trustee will calculate your entitlement and prepares a claim which will be forwarded to the department of employment. If the claim includes payment in lieu of notice, a supplementary application form must also be completed. The claim is then assessed and if approved, payment is made direct to you.

Industrial Tribunal

If your application is rejected or your claim is reduced, you can submit a complaint to an industrial tribunal within three months. If the tribunal feels that your claim should be satisfied in full, it will make a declaration to that effect, and will state the amount that ought to be paid.

Redundancy Fund

Should you experience difficult pressing a claim through the liquidator, receiver or trustee, you may seek assistance of the department of employment as they may accept a direct claim for payment out of the redundancy fund.

Payments out of Your Employer’s Assets

Any balance outstanding after payment from redundancy fund can be pursued as a direct claim against your employer’s assets.
