Which employees should be provided with assistance after having been notified of dismissal by reason of redundancy?

All employees should be offered assistance irrespective of age or length of service. However, employers should discuss the requirement for assistance with the employees concerned as not all of them will want or need it. Some employees may already have a solid career plan, may welcome the opportunity to leave the organisation or may have intended to retire in any case. Employees with long service with the employer may require particular help as they will not have used their job-search skills for some time.
