Hi boards members,
Just thinking now and looking trough all available forms for unemployment due to COVID19.
My situation is a bit different to all scenarios explained on the gov.ie / welfare website.
I am working on a full-time roaster that is done at least 3 weeks ahead. Now, my working hours are significantly reduced to 20h a week or less (depending on the situation in the retail store).
My contract of employment is for minimum 15 hours a week - how is that affecting my possibility to get a help from social welfare for the balance of hours cut - therefore applying for the short term work form?
If I was about to apply for short-term work support payment - my working hours are calculated as full-time employment or the amount of hours on the contract (15 in my case) therefore not allowing me to apply for the benefit?
Thank you in advance for your help.
