Redundancy may arise as a result of a business re-organisation, the closing down or relocation of a business.
In dealing with a possible redundancy, which can often prove traumatic and have a serious impact upon any Employee, there is a duty on the Employer to consult with their Employees.
Selection for redundancy should be fair, and it may be based on a variety of criteria. The Employer needs to consider a variety of options including a reduction in working hours, structure, or relocation of staff, before making staff redundant. Redundancy situations may conclude with a Settlement Agreement.
