Expert advice if you have been made redundant.
Helping you with redundancy
Get advice and representation with an experienced trade union official
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many employers have seen a downturn in business as a result of the government lockdown. 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.
