Redundancy Support

If you have been made redundant, or are under threat of redundancy, you can speak without obligation to one of our expert advisors who specialise in Redundancy situations.

If you’re going to be made redundant, you should be treated fairly by your employer and there are certain steps that your employer would be expected to follow. You may also be entitled to a redundancy payment.

Redundancy  is a form of dismissal from a job. Reasons include:

  • New technology or a new system has made your job unnecessary

  • The job you were hired for no longer exists

  • The need to cut costs means staff numbers must be reduced

  • The business is closing down or moving

It can still be a genuine redundancy if someone else’s job disappears and they are moved into your job, making you redundant. This is known as ‘bumping’, but it may be difficult for your employer to justify as fair.

Redundancy Procedure

Employers must follow the correct procedure for redundancy in which the following things should happen:

  • Your employer should select you fairly
  • You should be consulted about the redundancy
  • You should get any redundancy pay you are due and be given the correct amount of notice
  • Your employer should consider any alternatives to redundancy
  • You have the right to appeal

If you are being made redundant or at risk of redundancy, you can speak to us in confidence with out any obligation.

Free legal advice was very useful for my situation and they have explained to em everything I needed to know. I was expecting some sort of "push" to get more advice and so pay them, but they did the exact opposite and were super empathetic.

Every time I speak with somebody from Castles a weight feels like it’s lifted and things become much clearer! I spoke with Lindsey today whose advice was practical, helpful and to the point. We were just under an hour on the phone and she answered all of my questions.
