Redundancy Support

Redundancy Support

Redundancy is when you dismiss an employee because you no longer need anyone to do their job. For a redundancy to be genuine, you must demonstrate that the employee’s job will no longer exist. Find out more about compulsory or non-compulsary redundancies.

More information on redundancies, including how to try and avoid them and what to do if you need to make employees redundant can be found on the GOV.UK website.

If your business is struggling, support is available through the Jobcentre Plus 'Rapid Response Service (RRS)'. This is a redundancy service designed to give both employers and employees the support and advice they need.

  • This service is free
  • This service is confidential
  • Jobcentre Plus can work independently or with other private organisations you are using to complement the support already being delivered

The Emplyer Help offer a range of advice to help your business overcome challenges associated with the Coronavirus pandemic visit the Employer Help website to find out more.
