What is Redundancy?

What is Redundancy? - 2

Termination of employment due to redundancy is a form of dismissal by the employer. It carries with it the concept of involuntary termination of the employee’s employment. However, rather than being a fault-based dismissal, redundancy is usually caused by factors such as economic conditions, business efficiency, or technological development.

Generally speaking, termination of employment due to redundancy occurs where:

  • an employer has made a definite decision that the employer no longer wishes the job the employee has been doing to be done by anyone; and
  • that decision leads to the termination of the employee’s employment.
