Facing redundancy can be a stressful, uncertain time. It’s important to know your rights and entitlements to fair treatment and financial compensation.

You may be placed at risk of redundancy in circumstances where, for example, the company for whom you work for is closing.

If you’ve been placed at risk, your employer has obligations to consult with you and to try and take steps to avoid making you redundant.

Our dedicated employment experts offer sound advice and support, guiding you through the redundancy process.

What can we advise you on

We can advise you on:

  • How to challenge the selection for redundancy
  • Whether the correct procedure has been followed
  • Whether there’s been a sufficient consultation
  • How to maximise any redundancy pay
  • If you’ve been offered a settlement agreement, we can review the terms and advise you on whether you should accept

"HJA expertly assisted with my redundancy process. I was very satisfied with the information provided. Indeed I was so impressed I would like to know if HJA can also provide independent financial advice for my Pension."

Featured cases

Achieved a settlement for a senior manager

He was offered redundancy after the implementation of a TUPE transfer. We advised our client who had been placed through a TUPE consultation related to a transfer of his employment. He’d been informed that he’d been placed at risk and that there were measures to be made which would foresee changes to his terms and conditions of his employment. With our assistance, we were able to steer him through the internal process which resulted in those measures not being implemented. The relationship broke down further.

Outcome: Negotiated an exit package of six figures.

We advised a client who was returning from maternity leave but was informed they were placed at risk of redundancy

We supported them through the internal process and advised on the options available, including challenging the process internally. We assisted her throughout the negotiations and secured an exit package which enabled her to leave with a resolution. 

Frequently asked questions

Can my employer choose to select me for redundancy because I’m due to go on maternity leave?

No, an employer can’t select an employee for redundancy on the basis of pregnancy or maternity leave.

How much will I receive as a redundancy payment?

Your employer may have an enhanced redundancy scheme and it’s therefore important to check this. However, in the absence of such a scheme, statutory redundancy pay is then calculated on the basis of how long you’ve worked for your employer, your age and your weekly pay.
