Being made redundant can have a negative impact on your finances and wellbeing.

Seeking legal advice from us at an early stage will better enable us to provide you with support at this difficult time, whether that be by simply checking your entitlements for you, or advising as to whether you have potential claims against your employer.

Redundancy and entitlements

Redundancy can arise in a several forms. Your employer might decide to closes it business entirely, close the workplace where you are employed or make seek to make cuts where there is a reduced requirement for employees to carry out the kind of work which you’re employed to do.

If you are made redundant, you will be entitled to:

  • Work your period of notice (or, in some circumstances, be paid in lieu of your period of notice); and
  • Statutory Redundancy Pay.

If you have been made redundant, you may feel that:

  • There was not a genuine redundancy situation;
  • Your employer did not consult with you;
  • You were unfairly selected for redundancy;
  • Your employer did not consider any alternatives to your redundancy.
