What is Redundancy?
There are three main redundancy situations:
- Closure of the business as a whole;
- Closure of the particular workplace where the employee was employed; and
- Reduction in the size of workforce.
An employee dismissed on the ground of redundancy is entitled to statutory redundancy pay if s/he meets the necessary eligibility requirements. These include:
- S/he has been employed for a continuous period of two years.
- S/he has been dismissed for redundancy.
Suitable alternative employment
An employee will lose their statutory redundancy pay if they unreasonably refuse an offer of suitable alternative employment.
