Offers of Alternative Employment
The redundancy pay scheme was not intended to penalise employers,– or to give employees a ‘right to a job’ - it was more to encourage– flexibility of labour by softening the blow for employees who were– the victims of one of the various different types of redundancy– situation described in the last chapter. But dismissals are not the only– way of dealing with a redundancy situation. If one job is no longer– needed, it may be that there is another job the employer could offer.– So long as that job is suitable for that employee, it was thought to be– in everyone’s interests for him to be offered and to accept it - the– employer would not have to make a redundancy payment; the– disruption to the employee would be lessened; and public money– from the Redundancy Fund would be saved.–
