Employees With Redundancy
If an employee covered by the Protection of Employment Act has been employed for no less than 3 years and is made Redundant by his employer, he may be entitled to Redundancy Benefit. It is important to note that Redundancy benefit falls under the ambit of the Protection of Employment Act. Although it is currently administered by the Dominica Social Security, Redundancy benefit is not a Social Security benefit.
Of the 7% payable by the employer on behalf of his employee, 0.25% is in respect of the Redundancy Benefit Fund established under the Protection of Employment Act.
