What is 'Bumping' and how can I used this to defend the reasons for making me redundant? (I have a direct report in the UK who is not impacted by the redundancy process and I believe some of my role will be done by my boss).

Hello, I may assist today.

Bumping (or more correctly a transferred redundancy) arises where an employee whose job is not redundant is dismissed to make way for an employee whose role has become redundant.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can I suggest that instead of making me redundant they should actually make my direct report redundant and bump me into his role (considering that was what I was doing until I had developed business beyond the UK and then started setting up France and Spain).

Absolutely correct.
