Hello
Thank you for your question.
There is a statutory minimum for redundancy for employees.
Employees who have been working for their current employer for 2 years or more will get:
half a week’s pay for each full year you were under 22
one week’s pay for each full year you were 22 or older, but under 41
one and half week’s pay for each full year you were 41 or older
There are some caps. The length of service is capped currently at 20 years and weekly pay is capped at £475.
The maximum amount of statutory redundancy pay is £14,250.
Some employers might offer more than the statutory but they do not have to do so. The employees contract of employment would need to be checked to see if it provides for more than the statutory.
