In Queensland, employers are required to follow a fair and reasonable process when making an employee redundant. It cannot be predetermined!
Employers must consult with affected employees and provide them with information about the redundancy, including the reasons for it and the process that will be followed.
They must also use fair and objective criteria when selecting employees for redundancy. This may include factors such as skills, qualifications, and performance.
Employers also need to give the correct notice, redundancy pay and entitlements. Failure to do any of these may make the redundancy unlawful.
