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.

Adrian was very professional and knowledgeable, helped with my query and put my mind at ease.

Julie Simpson

After a very distressing time in my employment caused by bullying and discrimination I finally found Castle Associates. I was very impressed by the speed and service provided by Castle Associates. I would strongly recommend this company and know from my own experience they are genuine.

From the moment I met Laura from Castle Associates I felt at ease and confident that she would ensure that I would be well represented. Until that point the whole situation felt very one sided, with me feeling as if I would never get the chance to properly present my side of the argument.

After working for the same company for many years my Daughter was made redundant. Before we looked into any legal aspect of the way the selection process was managed we felt that the whole process had been unfair and discriminatory.

I just wanted to say a personal thank you for the support provided by your organisation to my staff at a very difficult time.

Katie

After twenty five years working for a business I was suspended without warning and threatened with disciplinary action. I received very valuable support and professional help at a very difficult time.

I have used the services of Castle Associates on two occasions. In both cases I have found them to be professional, caring and thorough. They helped me through the minefield of employment laws and in both cases the conclusion was extremely satisfactory.

As I had a disappointing experience with my own union, I was apprehensive to instruct Castle Associates to act on my behalf, however after speaking to Mark Ferron (MD) he instantly gained my complete trust and confidence.

I was involved in being beaten up at work by a colleague who committed GBH on me resulting in a bleeding mouth, bruising and two fractured ribs. There were no witnesses and my employer seemingly attempted to get us both sacked regardless.

I recently had to use Castle Associates to help me with a grievance process I had taken out against my employer. They guided and advised me through a very stressful process and I truly believe the outcome (which was good) was down to the representation I had.
