Description

Legal rights and obligations pertaining to redundancy are currently governed by the National Employment Standards (NES) set out in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth). An organisation wishing to make employees redundant must be familiarise with redundancy rights and obligations set out in the NES.


Extreme care should be taken to ensure that there is a genuine basis for a redundancy. For example, a dismissal is not a genuine redundancy if it would have been reasonable in the circumstances for the employee to be redeployed within the employer’s organisation.


It is also important to implement lawful and appropriate redundancy processes. For example, many industrial awards/agreements require employees to consult with employees and trade unions prior to making redundancy decisions.
