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.
