According to the Employment Rights Act 1996, an employee is dismissed by reason of redundancy if the dismissal is wholly or mainly attributable to the fact that:
- the employer ceases to carry on the business in which the employee was employed;
- the employer ceases to carry on that business in the place where the employee was employed;
- the needs of the business for employees to carry out work of a particular kind cease or diminish; or
- the needs of the business for employees to carry out work of a particular kind in the place where the employee was employed cease or diminish.
Ensuring that you manage a redundancy process fairly and effectively is vital to good communication, and avoiding claims from employees.
