Unfair Redundancy Claims – Redundancy Law and Your Rights

An employee is made redundant if they are dismissed from their job as a result of the firm needing to reduce the workforce. Reasons for this might include:

  • The company is closing down or moving
  • The role you were hired for no longer exists

However, there is still a variety of things your employer needs to consider to make sure redundancy is fair, even if the reason for your redundancy is one of the above.

An employee’s redundancy rights include:

  • The right to notice
  • The right to a fair selection process
  • The right for the employer to consider alternatives to redundancy
  • The right to redundancy pay
