  • Redundancy

    Ending the employment relationship because a certain kind of work is no longer required, or there is no more work available in the company. Before making an employee redundant, employers must show they have explored all other possible avenues to keep the worker employed. The employer must also go through a thorough consultation process with the employee about the proposed redundancy.

    Employers are required to give notice of redundancy to employees in accordance with the employment agreement. If there is no clause in the agreement, the notice must be given within a reasonable timeframe.

    Just like other forms of dismissal, redundant employees are entitled to unused annual leave, salary and other entitlements in their final pay.
