Redundancy occurs where an employer no longer requires an employee’s job to be performed by anyone because of changes in the operational requirements of the employer’s business.

A redundancy is a major workplace change. It is something an employer must consult with employees about.

The consultation process is rigid and set out in the relevant industrial instrument. Generally, it requires the employer to notify of the decision, to provide relevant information, to meet with the affected employee and to consider mitigation efforts.

Redundancy pay is payable in certain circumstances.
