Redundancy (policy factsheet)

  • July 2020

Redundancy is a form of dismissal which occurs when an employer needs to reduce the size of its work force. This could be because a contract has been lost, a team is downsizing or moving location or that the role is no longer required.

When there is a genuine reason for redundancy, and employers have followed the correct procedures, employers by law, must make redundancy payments and provide notice period payments in connection with termination to employees who are selected for redundancy and who have completed at least two years’ service.
