There is comprehensive legislation surrounding redundancy. If a business is looking to restructure, improve efficiency or downsize, they are likely to consider redundancies. However, they must follow a certain process. Failure to do so could lead to costly claims or protective awards, which employers will want to avoid.
If you have been made redundant, you should ensure you know your rights. The process can be highly distressing, therefore Bowsers Solicitors will sensitively guide you through the legalities, helping you to confirm that your dismissal is fair and, if not, how to proceed otherwise.
Solicitor for Redundancy Near Me
When being made redundant, there are some rights that you might be entitled to. This includes:
- Redundancy pay.
- Notice period.
- Employer consultation.
- Time off to find a new job.
- The option to move to a different job or alternative employment.
You will have certain entitlements if you have been in the job for at least two years (or less, depending on the circumstances). If your employer breaches these rights, you may have a claim.
There are also other conditions that you should be aware of relating to the above points, including the level of redundancy pay you are entitled to, depending on how long you worked at the firm and how long your notice period should be.
