Claimant was laid off when there was a large reduction at his plant. Under the union contract he was entitled to a severance payment to be made in four installments over a one-year period. Claimant contends and BOR finds that this was a "lump sum in connection with a plant closing," under a statutory exception to the general rule that a claimant who is receiving severance or continuation pay is disqualified. Although the payment was not exactly a lump sum and the plant did not exactly close, BOR applies §74 of the statute to find in claimant's favor. BR-261159 Advocate: Peter Benjamin, WMLS
