Loss of your job can be stressful and unsettling. Our sympathetic and practical team of Employment Lawyers can provide you with expert advice on your entitlements as well as advising whether or the not the redundancy is genuine.
Redundancy is a form of dismissal. Therefore, in order to claim redundancy, you must normally have been dismissed from your job. You must have been dismissed because you are genuinely redundant otherwise you may have been unfairly dismissed.
If you resigned, you will not be redundant. You may, however, be able to argue that although you have resigned, you have actually been dismissed, a circumstance known as constructive dismissal.
There are special rules (TUPE) which apply if you have been dismissed because the business has transferred to a new owner. There are also special rules which apply if you think you may have been dismissed or chosen for redundancy because of discrimination.
