What do I need to consider about my redundancy?
Although it can be a difficult and stressful process to go through, most redundancies are handled fairly and correctly by employers, especially if they receive professional legal advice of their own. However, in some instances employers don’t follow the correct procedures or handle redundancies unfairly.
Depending on your situation and how long you have worked for the company, you could be entitled to claim Wrongful or Unfair Dismissal. If you have evidence that you have been discriminated against as part of the process, you have a statutory right to kept safe from discrimination and should seek legal advice.
If you have been asked to sign a Settlement Agreement following the redundancy, your employer should pay for you to receive independent legal advice. If this is the case, we can provide this advice for you to ensure that the agreement is fair.
