Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.

Are they in a position to pay redundancy in normal circumstances?

There was a tapering off system years ago for those over 64 if they were being made redundant but with the abolition of the retirement age around 10 years ago this was also removed. So my will certainly be eligible for redundancy pay.
