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 of redundancy.
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.
