Redundancy can be a complex area of law.

It is always stressful if your role has been placed at risk or you have been selected for redundancy.

We have represented thousands of people in these circumstances so we understand the questions you may have. More importantly, we know the questions you should be asking your employer.

We have a Redundancy Factsheet you may find useful and in addition a short summary about Redundancy.

When more than 20 people are being made redundant at 1 workplace there is a legal requirement for consultation, and failure to do so can give rise to a claim for a Protective Award. Ideally employers will consult prior to making any employees redundant.

If you are dismissed by reason of redundancy you may be entitled to a redundancy payment and possibly further compensation if the decision to dismiss was unfair. Employers often insist on employees signing a Settlement Agreement prior to agreeing to make redundancy payments.
