The following Employment Q&A provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:

  • What payments are employees entitled to receive in respect of notice and redundancy when they are dismissed for redundancy, and how are these taxed?

The payments that an employee is entitled to receive on termination of employment will be determined by statute and the contract of employment.

In relation to notice, the written statement of particulars of employment must include the notice of termination that the employee is entitled to receive.

The period of statutory minimum notice to be given to employees is:

  1. no minimum in the first month of employment

  2. one week after continuous service between one month and two years

  3. one week for each complete year of continuous service for service between two years and twelve years

  4. 12 weeks after 12 or more years' continuous service

If the notice period in the contract is different from statutory notice, then the employee will be entitled to whichever is the longer.
