If you are an employee who has been made redundant you are entitled to receive a statutory redundancy payment from your employer as well as your entitlement to notice or notice pay.
To claim a statutory redundancy payment you must be an employee and have at least two years' continuous service with your employer.
Currently, redundant employees are entitled to receive:
- half a week’s pay for each completed year of employment between the ages of 18 and 21;
- a week’s pay for each completed year of employment between the ages of 22 and 40;
- a week and a half’s pay for each completed year of employment over the age of 40.
For the purposes of calculating your redundancy entitlement, a week’s pay is capped at £508 (from 6 April 2018). You can claim for a maximum of 20 years’ service.
