Redundancy

Redundancy is a form of dismissal whereby an employee’s role is no longer necessary or the employer is restructuring or closing.

How can we help?

What is a Redundancy?

The statutory definition of Redundancy identifies three sets of circumstances:

  • Business closure (closure of the business altogether).
  • Workplace closure (closure of one of several sites, or relocation to a new site).
  • Diminished requirements of the business for employees to do work of a particular kind.

Depending on an employee’s length of service, they may be entitled to a payment when made redundant. Our Employment department can advise employees of their employment rights at the time when they are notified of their potential selection for redundancy, and can assist in obtaining statutory redundancy payments.

Hanne & Co can also provide advice as to whether the correct procedure has been followed by the employer or whether the employer has acted “fairly” in selecting the employee for redundancy. An employee may be entitled to bring an unfair dismissal claim if they have been treated unfairly.

Highly recommended. Took all of the strain and stress during conveyancing and explained everything clearly and concisely.

Family & Divorce

Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

Despite your busy work schedule, you always made our case at the top of your priority list, you kept us calm and soothed our fears. Without your wonderful advice and your firm’s legal experience, we would not have the outcome we had. I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone who needs a brilliant solicitor.

Child Care

I will never forget the feeling when I heard the outcome of the court ordering my children to be returned home. I cannot thank you enough for your assistance. Your legal expertise, professionalism and attention to detail went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Child Abduction

I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
