Making staff redundant can be a difficult decision for employers and is often devastating for affected employees. Our lawyers can ensure that the process goes smoothly, and employees receive what the law requires.

If you have been made redundant, Antunes Lawyers are Employment Law experts and can help you understand and access everything you are entitled to.

The Fair Work Act sets out the conditions of genuine redundancy and the process that employers must follow when making an employee redundant. Genuine redundancy occurs when an employer no longer requires a job to be performed by an employee and terminates their employment, or when a business becomes insolvent or bankrupt. In such circumstances, an employer is required to give the employee proper notice of termination and provide redundancy or severance pay.

When making staff redundant, there are many conditions that employers must follow to comply with legislation. Our lawyers can help you to navigate the legislation and determine what you must provide to employees who are made redundant, including:

  • the minimum notice period
  • the payment in lieu of notice
  • the redundancy pay amounts
