Redundancy Advice from Employment Law Aberdeen

Our employment law solicitors can assist employees with redundancy advice. In general an employee will be redundant if the entire business in which he or she worked is no longer in a position to trade, or if the business continues to trade but there is no longer a requirement at the employee's particular place of work for workers of the employee's type or for their particular skill.

Redundancy Payments

In order to qualify for redundancy payments the employee in question must have been in continuous employment with the employer for at least 2 years prior to the date of dismissal. There are, however, some workers who will be excluded from this rule - contact us today to find out more about this.

Voluntary Redundancy

An employer can seek out employees who may wish to consider a voluntary redundancy situation rather than having to be involved in a redundancy selection process. Employees should obtain legal advice on such matters.

Statutory Redundancy

Statutory Redundancy payments will depend on factors such as your length of service, your age and your weekly pay. As a guide your minimum statutory redundancy payments would be as follows: 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; and • One and a half week's pay for each year above the age of 41. To find out more about statutory redundancy contact our Aberdeen employment lawyers.

Redundancy Rights

If are going to be made redundant, or have been made redundant, then you are entitled to work your notice period, go on gardening leave, or receive pay in lieu of notice.  Check your employment contract for details of this, or contact us on 01224 515 881 for assistance.  In redundancy situations all employers have to follow a recognised procedure - contact our solicitors at Aberdeen Employment Law if you need advice on this.
