Calculating your redundancy payment

Our current policy for redundancy payments is applied for both voluntary and compulsory redundancies.

To be entitled to a redundancy payment, an employee must have a minimum of two years of continuous service.

Calculate your redundancy

The calculation of weeks used is based on:

  • 0.5 weeks pay for each full year of service where your age was under 22
  • 1 weeks pay for each full year of service where your age was 22 or above, but under 41
  • 1.5 weeks pay for each full year of service where your age was 41 or above

Any amount of redundancy payment over £30,000 is subject to tax.

If you are also a member of the Local Government Pension Scheme aged 55 or over, you are entitled to immediate payment of your pension scheme benefits. To calculate your pension benefits please follow the link to the Calculate your Pension Benefits (Redundancy)
