Labour Court Recommendation on Enhanced Redundancy and the 2 Year Ban

Following a lengthy campaign lead by IFUT, the Labour Court has made a recommendation (20730) that any employee who has come to the end of their employment in the Education Sector who is prepared to accept the 2-Year Ban will be paid the nationally agreed amount of 3 weeks’ pay per year of service in addition to statutory entitlements.

For those who wish not to be covered by the ban a payment of 2 weeks’ pay for every year of service in addition to the statutory entitlement will apply.

The application of the 2-Year Ban, especially in the Higher Education Sector, has always been viewed as deeply unfair by IFUT.

This Labour Court Recommendation recognises and addresses this unfairness.
