Redundancy

If you are being or have been made redundant, did they do it fairly and what can you do about the situation. Most people are dismissed on the grounds of redundancy.

The question is, was it a genuine redundancy?

For it to be a genuine redundancy, the work that you undertook and the requirement for you to do it must cease or diminish. This means the job has either gone or there is less need for that particular work.

Redundancy

It is obvious your job has gone if there is a closure of a factory or a business unless of course that business is taken over and run by someone else doing the same or similar work.

If you are employed over one year, then you have the right for written reasons for your dismissal. If you have not obtained the written reasons for dismissal i.e. a letter stating why you have been dismissed, then ask for it in writing.
