A redundancy situation may occur if work has diminished or there is a business or workplace closure.
During a redundancy process, you should be allowed the right to be accompanied by a trade union representative or a colleague. You should be given an opportunity to put forward your suggestions to avoid being made redundant and your employer should listen to your views and give them consideration. If you are dismissed, you should be given the right to appeal that decision and the right to be accompanied to that meeting also.
If you are being made redundant, you may be eligible to receive the following:
- Redundancy pay
- Notice pay
- o Suitable alternative employment (where available)
- Time off to find a new job
