rə.ˈdən.də / Redundancy


Redundancy is the termination of employees when a business no longer needs certain roles within the organization.

In most cases, the termination occurs because of business reasons, such as:

  • Poor state of economy
  • New technology that has made the job role redundant
  • Financial difficulties
  • Closure or relocation of the business
  • Discontinuation of the project that the employee was hired to do


When any of these situations take place, the employer finds no choice but to reduce their workforce.

Redundancy has two types: forced and voluntary

The former involves a selection process in which criteria is used to determine which employees of a job role will be made redundant. On the other hand, voluntary is when an employee decides to be selected for redundancy. In this case, the employer provides incentives to the employee.
