Letter Withdrawing Notice of Redundancy
Redundancy is potentially a "fair" reason for dismissal but non-compliance
with fair redundancy procedures could render an employer open to a
successful action for unfair dismissal.
This Letter Withdrawing Notice of Redundancy should be used to request an
employee’s agreement to the withdrawal of the notice of redundancy because,
for instance, an upturn in work means that the employee’s role no longer
needs to be made redundant.
Once the notice of termination of employment has been issued to the
employee, the employer cannot unilaterally withdraw it. Consequently, this
letter seeks the employee’s express consent to the withdrawal of the notice
If the offer of renewal of the contract of employment is rejected, this
Letter Withdrawing Notice of Redundancy asks for the employee’s detailed
reasons for the decision. This is in order to ascertain if the employee’s
reasons for rejecting the offer are reasonable. If an employee unreasonably
refuses an offer to renew the contract of employment, the employee will
lose the right to a statutory redundancy payment.
