“Redundancy” means a reduced requirement for someone doing your role in the business. In this instance it will probably be because your employer needs to cut costs very quickly during this present crisis. If approached, you could offer to be furloughed to see if that is an alternative. Being eligible for redundancy pay only applies if you’ve been with your employer two years or more. Otherwise, you’re only entitled to be paid for your contractual notice period – this is set out in your contract of employment. Redundancy is never a good experience; please remember this is about your role and has nothing to do with you or your performance. You can visit the ACAS website for more information.
