Any restructure of a business brings uncertainty for all, particularly if there’s a possibility you could be facing redundancy.
Whether you receive a redundancy payment will depend on whether there is a provision for that in your employment contract. Otherwise a business isn’t required to pay you any redundancy compensation.
The law requires a redundancy to be genuine, reasonable, and for a fair process to be followed. If not, you can raise a personal grievance claim.
If your business is considering a restructure – which almost always involves some redundancies – it’s worth giving us a call to check you’re getting the processes right.
If you’re an employee facing redundancy, or have been made redundant, and you don’t think it’s been fairly done, get in touch with us. We’ll review the procedures and give our view on whether you think you have a valid claim on your employer.
