Can my employer make me redundant?

Your employer can declare your job redundant if the requirement for the work you are doing has either ceased or is diminishing.

It does not automatically follow from being put at risk of redundancy that it is you who will ultimately be made redundant. It depends on the criteria for selection that your employer adopts.

For example, one of the selection criteria could be disciplinary record, which could mean that an employee with a worse disciplinary record than you is dismissed.

Redundancy is one of the statutory fair reasons for dismissal, but the employer must still ensure that there is a fair procedure leading to dismissal on these grounds.
