If you are making an employee redundant and the employee requests an appeal this letter helps to ensure an employer complies with the laws on unfair dismissal. It is an essential step of the redundancy process.
This meeting is a result of an employee appealing a redundancy decision. Depending on the grounds in the employee's appeal, the appeal meeting will either review or remake a decision for compulsory redundancy.
There is no statutory right for an employer to allow appeals against redundancy dismissals, but it is good practice to offer an appeal unless the employer has a contractual dismissal policy that requires them to allow an appeal.
The meeting should be scheduled before the employee's last day of employment. If this is not possible, the employer should make clear if the employee's employment will be extended until the hearing date or not.
At the hearing, both the employee and employer will have the opportunity to present their position regarding the previous decision.
Depending on the employer's redundancy policy, the employee will present their appeal first, including interviewing any witnesses or reviewing any documents. Then the employer will present their position, including the measures they have taken to avoid redundancy (eg efforts to seek redeployment, reduction of overtime hours, and considering voluntary redundancies).
The hearing will then be closed, with the outcome to be communicated to the employee as soon as possible.
If a redundancy appeal is successful, the employee will keep their role with the company. Continuity of employee benefits and whether the employee will need to return any redundancy should be covered by the employer's policy on redundancy and appeals.
