Redundancy Payments: Ready Reckoner

The redundancy payment due to each employee under the statutory redundancy payment scheme depends on his or her age and length of service (up to twenty years). This determines the number of weeks pay due, which is then subject to a limit on weekly pay.

To calculate the number of weeks pay due, you should use the following amounts –

  • 0.5 week’s pay for each full year of service where age during year less than 22
  • 1.0 week’s pay for each full year of service where age during year is 22 or above, but less than 41
  • 1.5 weeks’ pay for each full year of service where age during year is 41+
