The amount of the redundancy benefit depends on the duration of the employee's last employment relationship.
If the employment relationship has lasted:
- 5–10 years – the benefit is paid in the amount of one month's average salary;
- 10+ years – the benefit is paid in the amount of two months' average salary.
The daily amount an employee receives is calculated on the bases of the wages employee has received during the last twelve months of the insurance period. Of those twelve months, only the first nine are taken into account. The latest three months are disregarded. On the basis of the record for those nine months, an average daily remuneration is calculated (the summary of the wages of nine months divided to 270), which is used for the calculation of the benefit.
