How do you determine whether a redundancy is genuine and what action can you take? Do redundancy payments apply and how much should they be?
Redundancy is one of the hardest things for an individual to face and one of the most difficult business decisions to make.
If you have been made redundant, it’s important to realise this termination is not linked to your work performance. And you should also know that your entitlements are different to those dismissed under normal circumstances.
Redundancies often happen when a business no longer requires a role to be filled. This can occur due to:
- Introduction of new technologies
- Mergers and takeovers
- Outsourcing a role
- A substantial drop in sales or production.
Paul Horvath Solicitors can advise employers on how to carry out the redundancy process properly to avoid wrongful dismissal claims.
We also help employees who feel their role has not been genuinely made redundant or whose entitlements have not been met.
