Calculate statutory redundancy pay where the redundant employee has moved from full-time to part-time hours

Key points

  • A redundancy payment is based on "a week's pay" and takes into account the employee's age and the number of years of employment.
  • The meaning of "a week's pay", and how it is calculated, is set out in the Employment Rights Act 1996.
  • Where an employee moves from full-time to part-time hours, with a concomitant reduction in pay, this will impact on the amount of "a week's pay" for the purposes of the redundancy calculation.
