Redundancy

If you find that you are to be made redundant then mosshaselhurst Solicitors can help by providing the support that will aim to ensure that any financial settlement you receive is fair.

Redundancy usually comes about in the following circumstances:-

  • The employer stops trading.
  • There is no longer a need for anyone in the business to carry out work of a particular kind or the need for that kind of work is diminishing.
  • There is a change in the geographical location of the business.

Set procedures

If redundancy is justifiable, the employer must follow the correct procedures.

If more than one employee is affected by the redundancy then the employer needs to consider reasonable alternative employment and to use a fair system to select those that are made redundant.

There are also statutory redundancy payments which must also be adhered to.

If the employer does not follow these procedures then they may be open to challenge legally and compensation may be payable.

mosshaselhurst Solicitors can help you with this by establishing whether the correct procedure has been followed and then acting on your behalf.
