Termination payments and benefits: severance payments under the working rule agreement for the engineering construction industry linked to Section 135 Employment Rights Act: scale of payments
EIM13834 refers to a payment made on redundancy under the working rule agreement for the engineering construction industry. The payment is made where the employment lasts not more than 104 weeks (which means that no statutory redundancy payment is due).
The weekly sum on which the severance payment calculation is based for a skilled employee is:
|### Date of termination||### Weekly payment|
|1 April 1992 to 7 January 1996||£3.94|
|8 January 1996 to 3 January 1999||£4.04|
|4 January 1999 onwards||£4.23|
|This figure will apply to at least 1 April 2002|
Payments to semi-skilled or unskilled employees will be proportional, based on the relationship between their basic rates and the craftsman rates. Employees who leave voluntarily or who are dismissed are not entitled to these payments.
