Genuine redundancies may occurs in three situations:

  • The business closing down completely
  • Place of work is closing down
  • The employer requires fewer employees to carry out specific work

Employers are required to give at least one week’s notice for each full year of continuous employment up to 12 weeks. However, if the contractual notice is more than the statutory, employers will need to compensate a redundant employee with a greater amount.

Yes, an employer is required to consult with staff about the possibilities of redundancies as early as possible. In addition, employees who are directly affected by this decision need to be consulted individually. Clear reasons need to be provided, and a form of compensation discussed. It is vital that employers have a strong grasp of correct procedures.
