Redundancy and reorganisation situations can be overwhelming and unsettling for anyone in the workplace, particularly for those whose roles have been placed at risk. These scenarios typically arise when a business or workplace decides to restructure its workforce in a different way or if there is a reduction in a particular kind of work. There is a procedure that employers must follow to ensure that you have been treated fairly as part of the process, to avoid you having an unfair dismissal claim.
Also if you have been selected for redundancy for a reason tainted with discrimination (e.g. due to being on maternity leave or due to being a certain age) you may have a claim for unlawful discrimination.
Special considerations and procedures apply when multiple redundancies arise.
