Definition: Redundancy is when an employer terminates someone’s employment because the position is no longer required.
It is a dismissal or layoff of an employee from work for being no longer necessary, for being superfluous on one's job.
An employer must have a genuine work-related reason for a R.
A R must be about the employee’s position, not the employee personally. A concern about how a particular employee may be performing is a performance issue and not a R.
The term is chiefly Brittish.
