“Who is appealing for redundancy pay? I can say NOBODY. Because redundancy pay does not have functional and economic importance. What does it mean? It is a pension or insurance for temporary unemployment. However, people rarely receive 70 % of their previous wage, in most cases, amount of payment obtained makes one minimum wage, which is 202 730 UZS. Nobody comes to obtain this amount. Unemployment payment does not meet its economic functions.”- said Sherzod Kudbiyev, Minister of Employment and Labor Relations
