Why do employees get made Redundant?

A redundancy can occur if there is work place closure or simply if there is a reduced requirement for employees to carry out work of a particular kind.

Redundancy is a fair reason for dismissal if it is the real reason. Of paramount importance here is the process and procedure. Specific timescales must be adhered to if more than 20 employees are at risk.

If under 20 employees are at risk employers must still follow a process which will involve a period of consultation and seeking out alternatives to redundancy. Employers may also offer trial periods of any alternative roles.

As with unfair dismissal the failure to follow a proper and legitimate procedure can render a genuine redundancy dismissal unfair.

The team can provide you with a suite of documents and related guidance as to how to carry out a redundancy process in accordance with current expected standards.

We work with you to tailor the documents to the particular circumstances and also to ensure that your communications protect your business but also reflect the tone you want to take with your employees.

Redundancy can be a very upsetting time for both parties and handled properly it need not always end in a dispute.

Remember that employees qualify for a redundancy payment after 2 years’ continuous service.

You must also make a notice payment and settle any outstanding holiday pay entitlements.

We can also assist you with assessing all entitlements and any relevant calculations.

What Our Clients Say About Our Employment Law Services

I was most impressed with the speed and efficiency which Andy Boyde at Consilia Legal handled my case. I selected Consilia Legal after reviewing previous feedback which had positive comments regarding the areas I was interested in. The way my case was handled turned a stressful situation into a quick and stress free process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Consilia Legal.

Craig S

Very quick and reassuring response from Andy and the team here after a very difficult situation at work. Referred from Citizen Advice Bureau because all other firms seemed less bothered about my needs versus their fees. Andy gave great advice and helped explore my options so I could respond appropriately without being cornered by my work. Ended up with a very amicable outcome! In difficult times you need people like Consilia to help guide and support you... thanks guys

Mirra Riz

Consilia Legal, and Marie in particular, have helped me a number of times with thorough and caring legal advice. This last time she helped me negotiate my way out of a difficult work situation. As a result of her candid advice I was able to: a) Leave amicably by resigning b) Secure 3 months pay in lieu of notice c) Obtain written confirmation a standard reference would be provided. Wonderful work as always and much appreciated! I would add there was a detailed plan in place should an amicable separation not have been possible, but this was not needed in the end due to the aforementioned candour. Always best to find an amicable solution.
