A redundancy plan will help you manage each stage of the redundancy process. It should show how you’ll:

  • avoid compulsory redundancies
  • consult staff
  • select staff for redundancy
  • give staff notice
  • work out redundancy pay
  • support staff and plan for the future

If you’re planning to make 20 or more employees redundant at the same workplace within 90 days (large-scale or 'collective' redundancies), you must work with any recognised trade union or employee representatives to develop your plan.

An agreed plan allows you to easily share information with all your staff and help them understand what’s happening. It’s particularly useful when you explain your proposed changes during the consultation phase.
