Making of payments

202.—(1) Where, on an application under Article 201 by an employee in relation to an employer’s payment, the Department is satisfied that the requirements specified in paragraph (2) are met, it shall pay to the employee out of the Northern Ireland National Insurance Fund a sum calculated in accordance with Article 203 but reduced by so much (if any) of the employer’s payment as has already been paid.

(2) The requirements referred to in paragraph (1) are—

(a)that the employee is entitled to the employer’s payment, and

(b)that one of the conditions specified in sub-paragraphs (a) and (b) of paragraph (1) of Article 201 is fulfilled,

and, in a case where the employer’s payment is a payment such as is mentioned in paragraph (2)(b) of that section, that the employee’s right to the payment arises by virtue of a period of continuous employment (computed in accordance with the provisions of the agreement in question) which is not less than two years.

(3) Where under this Article the Department pays a sum to an employee in respect of an employer’s payment—

(a)all rights and remedies of the employee with respect to the employer’s payment, or (if the Department has paid only part of it) all the rights and remedies of the employee with respect to that part of the employer’s payment, are transferred to and vest in the Department, and

(b)any decision of an industrial tribunal requiring the employer’s payment to be paid to the employee has effect as if it required that payment, or that part of it which the Department has paid, to be paid to the Department.

(4) Any money recovered by the Department by virtue of paragraph (3) shall be paid into the Northern Ireland National Insurance Fund.
