Redundancy is one of the most traumatic events an employee may experience, but the negative effects can be reduced by sensitive handling of redundant employees and those remaining. You’ll find here information on termination of employment, voluntary redundancy, redundancy pay, redundancy counselling, outplacement, selection for redundancy, downsizing and redeployment.
There is another page for dismissal.
Looking for an older report on redundancy which is no longer on the website? The full-text of all our research publications and surveys from 1999 onwards is available to CIPD members from our HR and L&D database.
Government plans to make changes to termination payments to public sector workers and taxing of termination payments are expected to take effect in 2016.
