Redundancy Solicitors

At Hodge Jones & Allen Solicitors, we understand that if you are facing redundancy, it can be a stressful, uncertain time. It is important to know your rights and entitlements to fair treatment and financial compensation. Our employment experts offer sound advice and welcome support, guiding you through the redundancy process.

You may be placed at risk of redundancy in circumstances where, for example, the company for whom you work is closing. If you have been placed at risk your employer has obligations to consult with you and to try and  take steps to avoid making you redundant as well as being required. Request a call back during office hours.

We can advise you on:

  • How to challenge the selection for redundancy
  • Whether the correct procedure has been followed
  • Whether there has 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.

Case Study: We advised a client who was returning from maternity leave but was informed that they were placed at risk of redundancy.

We supported them through the internal process and advised of 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 with which she was delighted, despite the difficulties associated with losing her job during her maternity leave.

Case Study: Achieved a settlement for a senior manager

He was offered redundancy after the implementation of a TUPE transfer. We advised a client who had been placed through a TUPE consultation related to a transfer of his employment. He had been informed that he had 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

Frequently asked questions

Can my employer choose to select me for redundancy because I am 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 is therefore important to check this. However in the absence of such a scheme, statutory redundancy pay exists which is calculated on the basis of how long you have worked for your employer, your age and your weekly pay.
