A genuine redundancy occurs when:
- an employer’s business, or part of it, has ceased to operate; and/or
- the employer’s business has moved to a different place; and/or
- the business’s need for work of a particular type to be done has ceased or diminished.
Even if there is a genuine redundancy situation, an employer must still follow a correct redundancy process. Lack of a genuine redundancy situation, or failure to follow a fair process can give rise to a claim.
If you are an employer we can ensure that you get the process right guiding you through complex restructures thus minimising the risk of tribunal claims.
