The Redundancy Policy is fully compliant with current best practice and the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Employment Rights Act 1996.
This Redundancy Policy sets out clear procedures that the employer will follow, both for collective redundancy and individual redundancies, which will help to ensure that all redundancy dismissals are considered and handled fairly, giving those employees who are affected by a proposed redundancy full opportunity to make representations.
The policy covers the key aspects of a redundancy process, including preparing the business case, consultation procedures, the selection process, redeployment and redundancy payments.

2. Aims of the Policy
