Training and job-hunting when facing Redundancy
Employees who are facing redundancy and are entitled to redundancy payment are also entitled to a reasonable amount of paid time off, during the notice period, to look for another job and organise training for themselves.
The DTI states: "An employee who is given notice of dismissal because of redundancy is entitled to reasonable time off with pay during working hours to look for another job or make arrangements for training for future employment. The time off must be allowed during the period of notice.
Employees are entitled to time off in this way only if they have had two years' continuous employment with their employer on the date their notice expires or the date when the statutory minimum period of notice due under the legislation expires, whichever is the later."
If the business or part of the business has been transferred from one employer to another, see A guide to the 2006 TUPE Regulations.
