What is Redundancy ?

In general redundancy takes place when a business ceases to trade or restructures and an employee's position no longer exists or is no longer required. i.e. has been made redundant. Our lawyers are seeing an increase in circumstances where companies are seeking advice on whether redundancy is appropriate. Employees are also seeking advice when faced with the prospect of a redundancy situation.

Am I Eligible for Redundancy Payments?

Normally to qualify for redundancy payments an employee needs to have been in continuous employment for at least 2 years prior to  being made redundant. However, some workers are excluded from this rule and you should contact Employment Law Glasgow to establish your status.

Statutory Redundancy - How much?

As a guide your minimum statutory redundancy payments are:

  • Half a week's pay for Half a week's pay for each complete year of service below the age of 22
  • One week's pay for each year between 22 and 40
  • One and a half week's pay for each year above the age of 41

Again certain other circumstances can factor into this calculation such as part time and full time work. Contact your Glasgow employment lawyers at Employment Law Glasgow for advice on calculating what you should be due.
