A redundancy occurs only when an employee is dismissed and the reason for their dismissal is that their job is no longer available at the place where they work (because the factory that employs them was closed, for example) or where their employer no longer requires the same number of employees to do what the employee does (because of a fall in demand for the product they make, or changes in technology, for example). An employee’s job is redundant if the business that employs them closes down or closes down at the location where they are works, or if they become surplus to the requirements of the business.
