Providing Key information for people facing redundancy

The INOU provides a range of supports to individuals and employers where people are about to lose their jobs. These include;

  • A confidential and impartial expert telephone and email based welfare rights information section. Our experienced welfare rights information officers provide important information for people who are facing redundancy situations and can answer your questions.
  • A range of INOU targetted publications including the leaflet 'What an unemployed person needs to know when they become unemployed' as well as our flagship publication Working for Work - which provides the most comprehensive and accurate guide for people who are unemployed or facing redundancy.
  • We have been providing presentations to staff in companies where redundancies have been occuring over the past number of years.

The presentation includes a group presentation which will last for approximately 45 minutes.

The powerpoint presentation will cover the following areas:

  • Redundancy
  • Tax and Redundancy
  • Social Welfare Payments
  • Education Options

These four areas cover information including:

  • Who qualifies for statutory redundancy?
  • Redundancy Calculation
  • Maximum Limit to Statutory Redundancy
  • Final Pay Packet, Basic Tax Exemption
  • Increased Tax Exemption
  • Information on Jobseeker's Benefit and Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Claiming Social Welfare
  • Social Welfare and Redundancy Lump Sum
  • Genuinely Seeking Work (GSW) criteria
  • Redundancy and GSW
  • Redundancy and Education

The group presentation will be followed by one-to-one meetings. These provide opportunities for people to ask any questions that they would prefer to discuss either more complex questions or queries private to themselves.
