Our redundancy frequently asked questions (FAQs) have been updated to reflect the outcome of a recent employment tribunal case about contractual redundancy entitlement.
In this particular case, an individual with two concurrent employment contracts, was made redundant from one post and then, at a later date, also made redundant from the remaining post. The tribunal decided that the two concurrent contracts were distinct and separate, meaning that when the individual was made redundant a second time, they were entitled to use the same reckonable service entitlement that was used for the first redundancy.
This was because it was part of the accrued rights of a distinctly separate contract and the continuity of employment had been preserved for this role regardless of the previous redundancy.
