I am in voluntary redundancy in my company. Can I collect unemployment?

If the move to the situation of voluntary redundancy in your company, requested the unemployment allowance shall be refused, because it has no legal status of unemployment.

If when in voluntary redundancy, works in another company different and at the end of his contract for reasons beyond their control requested unemployment benefit may be entitled to the same:

  • If the duration of leave is not finished when the legal situation of unemployment. In this case, whether the duration of the provision is unpaid leave, collects provision until the end of this unpaid leave. At that time the provision would be suspended, as it should request its return to the company and await their response. If the company manifest inability to accept their return for lack of suitable vacancies, or deny the same at that time but supports the re-entry at a future date, you can continue receiving unemployment benefit until the date of return to the company or until the end.

  • If the duration of the voluntary redundancy had already passed when applying for unemployment benefit or was not provided for a minimum period of duration of leave granted. In this case, it is mandatory to apply for re-entry into the company. While the company did not reply, it is not possible to solve the unemployment benefit application, by not having legally unemployed. If the company said that at that time cannot be reinstated, it would be legally unemployed and could solve your request.
