Other Rights of Redundant Employees

Site updated on August 5, 2016

The right to time off to look for alternative work or to arrange training.

When you are under notice of redundancy, you have the right to reasonable paid time off work to look for another job or to look for appropriate training. There is no specific time off allowed although Tribunal cases have indicated that a maximum of two days per week would not be unreasonable. Strictly speaking you need two years service for this right, but some Employers offer it anyway so it is worth enquiring!

As mentioned elsewhere, there is also the right to redundancy pay; the right to notice; and the right to a trial period if alternative work is available.
