Helping you with redundancy

Get advice and representation with an experienced trade union official

As a result of a downturn in the economy and rising costs many businesses are looking for ways to save money and cut costs. Sadly, many employers have turned to redundancy without considering other options first.

If you're faced with redundancy, your employer must treat you fairly, taking into account  your contract terms and other legal rights.


Your employer must tell you what's going on and give you a chance to ask questions and raise objections. There should also be a fair reason for the redundancy and the employer also has a legal duty to prevent job losses where possible. 


If your employer does not follow the correct procedure, then you could have a claim for unfair dismissal, or claim compensation for lack of consultation.

How can PAL help?

If you find yourself at risk of redundancy it is often difficult to know if your employer is treating you fairly. PAL provides advice and representation during this difficult time and this could really make a difference to the outcome.
