Ok that's great.

Redundancy is potentially a fair reason for an employer to dismiss but the employer must act fairly in the procedure.

There must be a genuine redundancy sitaution, i.e. the need for a person to perform the role must have ceased or diminished.

The employer must have consulted with you as to ways of avoiding the redundancy sitauion.

The employer must have selected you fairly based on objective criteria. The employer should not have made it clear who was being made redundant before the end of that process.

You must have been offered the chance to apply for any alternative role before being dismissed.

If the employer has failed in any of the above you should appeal against the dismissal (in the event you are dismissed) and then raise a claim using the form you will find at

If you have any further quesitons please do ask. If I have satisfactorily answered your quesiton I would be grateful if you would take the time to give my answer a postiive rating. Thank you and all the best.
