Are you being made redundant?
It is important to know the difference between redundancy and dismissal as it can have an impact on your benefit entitlement.
You are being made redundant if you are losing your job because the job will no longer exist or your employer needs less people to do the work – this can happen if your employer is reducing their workforce or if they go out of business. You can volunteer for redundancy if this is offered to you or you may have no choice.
If you are being dismissed from your job because of your conduct or performance, whether you dispute this or not, then you are not being made redundant.
