If you have been made redundant, but believe it is unfair dismissal, you should speak to Kingsford Lawyers as soon as possible to help determine the nature of the end of your employment.

Redundancy pay is a payment made to an employee that has been made redundant. According to Section 119 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (the Act), an employee is entitled to receive redundancy pay if the employer terminates the employee’s employment due to redundancy.

As per the National Employment Standards (NES), an employer must provide an employee with a minimum period of notice or payment in lieu of notice before terminating their employment. All employees working under Commonwealth workplace laws are entitled to redundancy payments or severance payments up to a maximum of 16 weeks’ pay under the NES if:

Employees may not be entitled to redundancy pay under the NES which includes:

At least 1 year but less than 2 years 4 weeks
At least 2 years but less than 3 years 6 weeks
At least 3 years but less than 4 years 7 weeks
At least 4 years but less than 5 years 8 weeks
At least 5 years but less than 6 years 10 weeks
At least 6 years but less than 7 years 11 weeks
At least 7 years but less than 8 years 13 weeks
At least 8 years but less than 9 years 14 weeks
At least 9 years but less than 10 years 16 weeks
At least 10 years 12 weeks*

* There is a reduction in redundancy pay from 16 weeks to 12 weeks for employees with at least 10 years of continuous service. This is consistent with the 2004 Redundancy Case decision made by the Australian Industrial Relations Commission.
