Redundancy Reckoner

From 1st February 2012, the statutory maximum amount is £430 per week.

To calculate the number of weeks redundancy pay, cross reference the person's age and years of service and then multiply that number by the weekly salary (maximum weekly salary is £430). e.g. a person with a salary of £200 aged 22 with 4 years of service will be entitled to two weeks salary e/g/ a total redundancy of £400.

17* - The table starts at age 17, as it is possible for a 17 year old to have 2 years service. Compulsory school leaving age can be 15 ¾ or 15 4/5 where a child is 16 before 1 September.

Particular care should be taken when calculating an individual's redundancy pay when they joined as an employee below the age of 16. 61 * - The table stops at age 61 because for employees age 61 and over, the payment remains the same as for age 61.

Client Testimonials

"I am very satisfied with Thomas Mansfield’s service. Every case they’ve handled for us has turned out to have a satisfactory outcome. They’re practical. They can assist behind the scenes with letters to employees etc, in fact often people don’t even realise we’re using lawyers, so they help us to avoid big conflicts later on by doing things properly at the time. Neill [at Thomas Mansfield] is very responsive – it’s almost as if the firm has grown in size but it still treats us as one of its original clients, and we’re dealt with great care."

Gerard Oates, Arcadia Group
