When does redundancy become an unfair dismissal? New employment law insights for senior executives

Redundancy is a word that is becoming all too familiar in our present economic climate.

Many companies are still looking to scale down their workforce by offering redundancy where there is a reduced demand for employees, including those working in senior-level positions. Occasionally, however, an employer may call a situation redundancy when, in reality, there are no genuine business reasons for the dismissal, and it is instead an unfair means of skimming off managerial and executive positions.

It is, therefore, important that when the issue of redundancy arises, the reasons and circumstances behind this decision are thoroughly scrutinised to ensure they are genuine and not something else. If it is not fair or the process has not been followed correctly, it may give rise to a claim for unfair dismissal.
