Redundancies occur when an employer is ceasing to carry on with work for which the employee was employed, or is ceasing to carry on with work in the place where the employee is employed.
While redundancy is a potentially fair reason for dismissal, for a redundancy dismissal to be fair, there must be a genuine redundancy situation and the employer must follow a fair redundancy procedure, including consulting on an individual basis. The employer must also comply with its collective consultation obligations where these apply.
