Areas of Law / Employment

I have worked for my employer for more than two years. The firm is now being relocated, making it unreasonable for us to travel to the new site. Should we be offered redundancy?

It depends whether there’s a “job mobility” clause in your employment contract and whether the firm’s new premises are too far away to be within daily travelling distance of your home. It’s possible that the firm will lay on transport for employees, but if they don’t you will have to discuss the possibility of redundancy with your employer. These things are always decided on an individual basis: whether it would be reasonable for you, in your circumstances, to move. Your situation is likely to become clearer as you near the relocation date, but if necessary you should discuss your position with a solicitor specialising in employment matters.
