Redundancy Law for Employees

If you are at risk of redundancy, you may need advice about redundancy law as well as strategy and tactics for dealing with your redundancy, if it happens. Although dismissal may be outside your control, you may well be able to influence factors such as timing, compensation, reference and, of course, the quality of the relationship you leave with.

“Even so, the redundancy hit me hard. For me, the lack of respect was akin to a physical assault. The first action I took on leaving the meeting room was to find the name of a good employment lawyer (james.haley@justemployment.com). He ensured that I received the financial redress that I felt I deserved. For me, it wasn’t actually about the money; it was genuinely about the violation of respect but, given that the respect wasn’t going to be forthcoming, I took the money instead.” – Ms E H, East Sheen

You may have a good claim in the employment tribunal. A high proportion of unfair dismissal claims are for redundancy dismissals. We recently won £45,000 (all tax free) for an architect.
