Redundancy Process

 Redundancy Process

Redundancies are, unfortunately, a fact of modern working life as organisations restructure, contract and generally evolve to meet changing priorities. However, with the right redundancy process in place, taking consideration of redundancy rights these programmes can run smoothly, supportively – and, crucially – in line with employment laws. Redundancy Process

Redundancy Rights


Making redundancies is a tough and emotionally draining task. There is no easy way to tell someone that they are no longer required, and difficult to prepare for, as there’s no way of knowing how employees will react. However, there are redundancy rights employers are legally required to meet.

Selection Criteria

For many organisations, making redundancies is at some point or another inevitable. For the redundancy process to be fair, and to avoid potential claims for unfair dismissal, it’s important to adopt a carefully-considered procedure and to apply any procedural steps consistently and equally across the workforce.

Redundancy Selection Criteria


Being dismissed through redundancy can be traumatic and upsetting, or it can be a voluntary choice that an employee has been presented with and opted for. Regardless of the circumstances, it helps to know your redundancy rights and particularly, what you are entitled to in monetary terms.

Redundancy Payment


Staff may be given the option of taking voluntary redundancy by employers who are keen to avoid compulsory programmes. Staff should always weigh up their redundancy rights before making a decision and be very clear on the terms, particularly where payments are involved.

Dealing with Redundancy

For many workers, being made redundant at some point in their careers is just a fact of working life. Unfortunately, the ever-growing influence of technology, economic ups and downs and changes in demand mean that most employees will experience redundancy, directly or indirectly.

What Happens Next?

Redundancy is an unfortunate fact of life for many businesses and the employees that work there. It is something that staff naturally feel nervous about, and yet they may not have the full information about their redundancy rights, and how it may affect them. We take a closer look at what to expect.
