Redundancy Alternative Work Offer

Alternative Employment Offer Letter


Where the redundancy of an employee is under consideration, an employer should consider whether alternative employment for the employee in question exists within his organisation.

Furthermore, an unreasonable refusal by the employee to accept a comparable job or one which is suitable alternative employment can prevent a claim for statutory redundancy pay. Such alternative employment offers should be made before the end of the existing employment contract to take effect immediately on the termination of that employment contract.

An employee accepting such an alternative employment offer on different terms (wholly or partially) to the original contract is entitled to a statutory trial period of four weeks. If, before or during the trial period, the employer or the employee wish the experiment to end, the employee will be taken as having been dismissed as from the date his original job terminated.

It is advisable that the employees performance during the trial period is carefully monitored and recorded.
