Redundancy solutions for employees
Redundancy occurs when there is no longer a requirement for your job. This could be for a number of reasons including a downturn in work or a business restructure.
What you should expect from your employer:
For a redundancy to be fair in law, your employer must have a genuine redundancy situation and must follow a fair procedure. This procedure includes a meaningful and reasonable consultation period, an objective selection criteria, consideration of suitable alternative employment and redundancy must be the last reasonable resort.
If you have less than two years’ service, you are not entitled to redundancy pay. If you have more than two years’ service, the level of redundancy pay you are entitled to receive is based on a formula referring to your age, length of service and weekly pay. There should also be an opportunity for you to appeal if you disagree with your employers actions.
