Recoupment of Social Security Benefits

Any social security benefits, such as Job Seekers Allowance, paid to an employee who has been dismissed, must be paid back to the Social Security Agency out of any award of compensation made by the Industrial Tribunal.  In practice, an employer must deduct the required amount from the award of compensation before making a payment to an employee.

Telephone Enquiry Point

The Agency’s Enquiry Point is available to employers, employees, trade unions and others. Enquiry Point advisors provide information and advice on a wide range of employment matters. The Enquiry Point is also an important contact point for identifying circumstances, or clients, who would benefit from being referred to other Agency services.

The Enquiry Point provides clear, confidential, independent and impartial advice to assist the caller in resolving issues in the workplace.

While the advisors cannot provide a legal opinion they can help callers gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities as well as identifying possible options to help resolve their issues.
