Voluntary redundancies are somewhat less complex than involuntary layoffs. It must be repeated that just because a worker resigns does not necessarily mean that it will lead to a positive result for the employer. Write down these tips when you are faced with a resignation. Next time we will unwittingly lay off in The Unemployment Road Map, Part 4: Do you know your terms and conditions – involuntary dismissals. If the dismissal of the employer does not apply within the aforementioned period, the dismissal of the employer is considered valid and the employer bears only the legal consequences. The termination of an employment contract by contract of mutual dismissal is not a condition that triggers the right to unemployment insurance under Law 4447 on unemployment insurance. Finally, I would like to say that workers must be explicitly informed before reciprocal redundancy agreements have been concluded and that the mutual and common intentions of workers must be demonstrated in order to reduce the risk of further challenge to the invalid effects of the agreement. Reciprocal termination agreements must be concluded in writing and the principle of a “reasonable benefit” must be taken into account with respect to the rights to be granted to the worker. In particular, the granting of certain material benefits, in addition to ordinary legal compensation, is of crucial importance for the presentation of the principle of “reasonable benefit”.
Some redundancies are made by mutual agreement between the employer and the worker. When this happens, it is sometimes doubtful that the termination was actually reciprocal. In many of these cases, the employer originally wanted the employee to be removed, but the employer proposed the mutual dismissal contract to mitigate dismissal (such as forced resignation). But there are also periods when a redundancy date is agreed before the start of employment (as in an employment contract). The word dismissal puzzles some employers. They believe that dismissal means that an employee has been fired. In the world of unemployment benefit rights, “cessation” simply means the end of a working relationship.
