Dismissal for redundancy

An Employer has a duty to :

  • Write to the employee and invite them to attend a meeting to discuss the situation and enable the employee to put their case against being dismissed
  • If the employer’s decision to dismiss is unchanged, the employer must again write to the employee advising them of the decision and of the employee’s right to appeal.
  • If the employee exercises the right to appeal the employer should hold an appeal meeting and subsequently advise them of the outcome of that meeting in writing.
