When an employer has a need to reduce its workforce, redundancy is usually the route it takes.
If you are facing redundancy, you will have certain rights, and may be eligible for redundancy pay, a notice period, a consultation with your employer, the option to move into a different role or to another branch, and time off to look for a new job.
Employers have a strict process to stick to when making redundancies, and your selection has to be fair. It is a good idea at this time to take legal advice. That way you can ensure your rights are being adhered to, that the process has been fair and that you are not actually being unfairly dismissed.
