This Lay-off Notice Letter should be used to inform an employee that they have been laid-off. Lay-offs generally occur where the employer does not have enough work and therefore asks the employee not to come into work.
This Lay-off Notice Letter specifies the duration of the lay-off i.e. whether it is for a determined period or indefinite. Please note that when a lay-off is to occur for an indefinite period, the employee will be entitled to make a claim for statutory redundancy pay after either four consecutive weeks or six weeks or more within a 13 week period of being laid-off. Please see the Guidance Notes available through the related document links below for more information.
