Has redundancy been mentioned at your work? Are you worried you are going to be made redundant? Or are you considering taking voluntary redundancy?
If you’re faced with being made redundant, the prospect can be daunting and stressful, both at work and in your personal life. As experts in redundancy law, we’re here to help.
What is redundancy?
Redundancy is a type of termination of employment that occurs when an employer no longer requires an employee to perform the work for which they were hired. This may be due to a decrease in business, a reorganisation of the company, or the outsourcing of work to another company.
You could be made redundant because of a business closure, workplace closure or your employer deciding they have a diminished requirement for work of a particular kind. As an employee, you have a number of rights when being made redundant. It’s important you understand what these are, as soon as you know you are going to be made redundant.
Our employment solicitors offer expert redundancy advice and support to those going through this process, helping to make sure your interests are represented, and your rights protected.
What am I entitled to if I’ve been made redundant?
If you’ve lost your job by being made redundant, you could be entitled to a statutory redundancy payment, if you have been with your current employer for at least two years continuously. You might also have an express or implied contractual right to an enhanced contractual redundancy payment.
Depending on the circumstances, it’s also possible you could challenge the termination of your employment as unfair dismissal. Some elements of employment law and redundancy can be complex, but we’re here to offer specialist support.
