Being made redundant isn’t the same thing as being sacked. It isn’t a result of anything you’ve done wrong. It should only happen when your role is ceasing to exist.
There are a number of rights you should be made aware of if you’re facing an impending redundancy, and the onus is on your employer to make sure you are treated fairly and receive everything you are due.
This ranges from exploring the option of alternative employment where possible, to making sure you receive the full financial package that your years of service have earned you.
It’s also important to understand that if you’re facing redundancy, you may be able to challenge the fact that you’ve been selected, if you believe this has happened due to discrimination rather than for some fair and objective reason.
