What are the rules for redundancy?
You must be selected for redundancy in a fair way, not for any unfair reason such as prejudice.
You cannot be selected due to age, gender, disability or pregnancy – each of which is classed as unfair dismissal.
You may choose to make someone redundant because your business model is changing what it does, doing things differently or is changing location or closing down.
Redundancies can be compulsory or non-compulsory.
