A redundancy can occur if there is work place closure or simply if there is a reduced requirement for employees to carry out work of a particular kind.

This is a fair reason for dismissal if it’s the real reason.

Of paramount importance here is the process and procedure.

Specific timescales must be adhered to if more than 20 employees are at risk.

As with unfair dismissal the failure to follow a proper and legitimate procedure can render a genuine redundancy dismissal unfair.

Employees qualify for a redundancy payment after 2 years service.
