Redundancy traditionally means that the employer no longer wishes that the duties of a particular position and employee be undertaken by anyone. It is therefore not uncommon for an employer to portray the termination of employment as a redundancy. It is important that you speak to lawyers to go over your options if you feel you have been treated unfairly when you are told your services are no longer required.
Equally, employers are well advised to take legal advice before the decision to make a position redundant and terminate the employment of an employee for that reason is made.
Being unfairly dismissed from a workplace can cause serious impact and stress on you and your family, not only financially, but also often on your ability to find new employment.

It is therefore important and best to speak to experienced lawyers regarding your options before commencing an unfair dismissal claim, and obtaining a preliminary assessment, as making any claim may prevent you from making other claims. Therefore you need to be careful before commencing or settling any unfair dismissal case.
