Your Employee Rights Explained

As an employee who has been made redundant, or is currently going through the redundancy process, you could be eligible for certain entitlements, including:

  • Redundancy pay
  • An alternative job
  • Time to look for a new job
  • A notice period along with pay
  • A one-to-one consultation with your employer

It is also imperative that, when selecting you for redundancy, your employer was fair in their decision, taking into account your length of service, disciplinary record and your skills and experience compared to other employees.

Your employer should not select you for redundancy based on your age, gender, a disability or pregnancy, religious beliefs or political views.

How Much Redundancy Pay Am I Entitled to?

In most circumstances, you will be entitled to redundancy pay if you’ve been with your current employer for two years or more, with length of service capped at 20 years. How much you are entitled to is determined by your age:

  • Those under 22 will receive half a week’s pay for each full year of service
  • Those aged between 22 and 41 will receive one week’s pay for each full year of service
  • Those aged over 41 will receive one and a half week’s pay for each full year of service

Weekly payments are capped at £479 and the maximum amount of statutory redundancy pay is £14,370. If redundancy and severance payments are under £30,000, no tax will be taken from the total amount.
