Redundancy is when your employer discontinues your employment at their organisation because your position is no longer needed. This does not occur due to anything you have done or not done as an employee but instead because the business is going through a change.
The decision to make an employee redundant must be made fairly and reasonably, with the employer having to go through a strict process. As an employee, you can file a personal grievance claim against them if you believe they haven’t followed the legal process.
A redundancy claim has set deadlines, so you must consult a lawyer early rather than late.
Hayman Lawyers are experienced in helping employees through their redundancy process to ensure that their employer’s decision was fair and reasonable.
- Analyse your situation and determine whether the decision was or wasn’t fair and reasonable.
- If we deem it not reasonable, we will support you in filing a personal grievance claim by challenging your employer’s decision.
- Help you through the process with the Employment Relations Authority.
- Answer any questions you might have.
In current times, redundancies are quite common, so it is a good idea to have an employment lawyer in mind, who you can turn to as early as possible if this situation applies to you.
At Hayman Lawyers, your lawyer will answer any questions you might have and give specialised legal advice about what your employer must do for the process to be deemed fair and reasonable.
