Generally redundancy comprises of three situations:

  • Closure of the whole business
  • Closure of the workplace where the employee was employed
  • Reduction in the size of the workforce

If you are dismissed due to redundancy you are entitled to statutory redundancy pay providing you satisfy certain eligibility requirements.

In addition your employer must follow certain procedures. Failure to do so could mean the redundancy may be automatically unfair. The redundancy may also be unfair for one of the following reasons:

  • there was no genuine redundancy situation
  • the employee has been unfairly selected
  • the employer failed to offer alternative employment

Subject to meeting the relevant eligibility criteria you are also entitled to take reasonable time off work during your notice period to look for a new job or make training arrangements.
