Redundancy Lawyers

Are you concerned about redundancy?

Redundancy usually occurs when the job or one or more employees is no longer required by the employer. This may be because the employer needs to cut costs or make efficiencies, is moving to a different location, or because the employer is shutting down completely.

Employers must follow a fair procedure when deciding which roles are redundant. The exact process to be followed depends upon how many employees are being made redundant at the same time. All affected employees must be consulted throughout the redundancy process and the employer must consider whether there are any alternatives to compulsory redundancies.

Statutory Redundancy Payment

All employees who have been in their job for two years or more are entitled to a statutory redundancy payment. Some employers also provide contractual or enhanced payments upon redundancy. Untaken holiday and notice must also be paid.

If you are an employer who needs to make redundancies, our team can make sure that you follow the correct procedure including how to select roles for redundancy, how to consult with the affected employees and how to calculate redundancy payments. Failure to follow the correct procedure may give rise to a claim for unfair dismissal.

If you are an employee who has been selected for redundancy, you may be given a settlement agreement, in which case we can provide independent legal advice. We can also advise if you feel that your selection for redundancy was unfair.
