Q: I have been employed 7 yrs full-time, 5 months ago went on part time(same company). I have now been made redundant-will my redundancy pay be based on part time salary? Thanks


A: Your statutory redundancy entitlement will be two weeks pay per year of service plus one extra week, up to a max of €600 per week. 

So you will be entitled to approximately 7.25 years times 2 weeks, equals 14.5 weeks plus one week or a total of 15.5. 
For exact calculations, see the redundancy calculator on the Department of Enterprise and Innovation website.
