Redundancy is a particular kind of dismissal that relates to the situation where an employer dismisses an employee because the role that they had is no longer needed.
There are a number of reasons as to why employers may do so, including:
- The business is failing;
- The business is pursuing a new venture where the employees’ skills are no longer needed; or
- The business is being taken over by another organisation that does not need the employees’ skills.
- Any employer considering engaging in the redundancy process should ensure that their action follows expert legal advice so they stay within the law. It is also wise for employers to consider offering employees alternative employment, where this is possible, to avoid any claims of unfair dismissal at a later date.
