What types of unemployment are covered?
If you are an employee or you are self-employed you are covered under the Redundancy Benefit, if you become involuntarily unemployed as a result of either:
- involuntary redundancy; or
- dismissal by no choice of your own; or
- a business you have a beneficial interest in is placed into insolvency administration; or
- your fixed term employment contract of 12 months or more ceasing prior to the agreed termination date by no choice of your own;
and you continue to be unemployed after the waiting period.
