What is a redundancy?

Redundancy occurs where your Employer no longer requires your job to be done by anyone due to changes in the operational requirements of the business. This might be caused by a downturn in your industry, a restructuring of the company or relocation interstate. Your job then becomes redundant.

Your employer should consult with you before making your position redundant.
