We receive many enquiries from employees who have been informed that they are at risk of redundancy. One of the first questions to consider is whether the employee is facing a true redundancy situation or not.

In order for the company to dismiss an employee by reason of redundancy, the company would have to show that: (i) it ceased or intends to cease carrying on the business for which the employee was employed; or (ii) it ceased or intends to cease to carry on that business in the place where the employee is employed.

If you need legal advice on the terms of your settlement agreement or compromise agreement, or guidance on negotiating your redundancy package with your employer, please contact an employment solicitor at
