Redundancy On Your Mind?
By Alan J. McDonald
If you are facing redundancy due to a restructure or downsizing at your workplace, your employer owes you certain obligations.
Generally, an employer must:
- Consult with you about workplace change – some workplaces require additional consultation with a union;
- Consider options for redeployment – this includes within related entities;
- Give you notice – in addition to notice of dismissal many employers are required to give notice of the date that a position becomes redundant.
Remember, the position and not the person is redundant and the larger the organisation the more likely that there is a suitable alternate role for you.
