What is redundancy?

Redundancy is a method of dismissal from an organisation and your job role. It can occur when employers need to decrease their workforce.

There may be things that you can be eligible for if you are being made redundant. This can be:

  • Redundancy pay
  • A consultation set up with your employer
  • To have an option to move to a different job role
  • A period of time off to look for a new job.
  • A notice period

If your employer is insolvent you will additionally have specific rights.

When being selected for redundancy it must be in a fair way, it can not be, for example, your capability to do the job role or your amount of experience. If being selected for redundancy because of gender, age, or disability or pregnancy, it can be classed as unfair dismissal.
