Calculate a redundancy payment for a local government employee: local authority

Key points

  • When calculating a statutory redundancy payment for an employee, local government employers should be aware of the potential effect of the "Modification Order" on the employee's length of continuous service.
  • The Modification Order provides that service with other local authority employers and other bodies specified under the Order can count towards the employee's service, subject to the normal rules on continuity of service.
  • Local authority employers should also be aware of the statutory rules on discretionary additional payments and the enhancement of statutory redundancy payments for local government employees.
