I am redundant. What does that mean for me?
Due to a reorganization, your position may lapse or fewer employees are needed in a certain position. As a result, you can be declared redundant. Always ask your employer for a written explanation as to why you have been found to be redundant and which schemes you can use. Consider, for example, guidance from work-to-work, a severance package with compensation or facilities that are included in a social plan. A number of provisions that may be included in a social plan include severance pay, suitable work within the organization and work-to-work guidance outside your employer. Unfortunately, it can also mean that you will be dismissed from your employer.
Do you receive a proposal from your employer? Have it checked legally before you make a commitment. De Unie can help you with this.
