Question from Hana Pandzo ([email protected])

We are currently managing a potential redundancy. We have offered the individual in the position at risk of redundancy alternative employment in a position that is within their area of expertise however at a lower level of seniority and remuneration. If they accept this position, will we still need to pay their redundancy entitlements?
Thank you.

Hi Hana,

If the employee agrees to continue his/her employment in the new role, then there is no termination of employment, and so, that employee has no entitlement to redundancy pay.

Kind regards

Matthew Gough
