We have many years of experience advising clients who feel that they have not been treated fairly in the course of redundancy proceedings.

What Is Redundancy?

The term ‘redundancy’ refers to particular types of scenarios when an employer decides to terminate an employee’s contract. These are when:

  • The place of work is closing down
  • Fewer employees are needed to carry out a specific type of work
  • The employer stops carrying out the kind of work that the individual was employed to do
  • The business carried out by the company has shrunk
  • The business is transferred to another employer

Can I Appeal My Redundancy?

Yes, your employer must allow you to appeal your redundancy if you want to. If they don't, you may have a claim for unfair dismissal.

Am I Legally Entitled to Redundancy Pay?

Yes, if you have worked for your employer, under a contract of employment, for two or more years, you will be, at the very least, entitled to a minimum statutory redundancy payment from your employer. However, you may be entitled to more if your employer has a contractual redundancy payment scheme.

Your statutory redundancy payment will be based on:

  • Your age
  • Your weekly pay
  • The number of years you have been in the job

If you think you are going to made redundant or have been offered redundancy, it is advisable to seek legal advice.
