Redundancy Entitlement

Employees are entitled to receive a redundancy payment if they are being made redundant and have worked continuously for UCL for at least two years. Redundancy is calculated on complete years of service and is calculated as follows:

Total Years Service Number of Weeks Salary Weekly Salary to be Paid
More than 2 years service and up to 4 years completed service Statutory Statutory limit of £4641 per each week due
5 years completed service and over but less than 10 years Statutory Actual weekly salary based on annual salary
Over 10 years completed service Statutory (x2) Actual weekly salary based on annual salary

Where the employee's weekly salary is less than the statutory redundancy figure of £464, calculations will be based on your actual weekly salary. For details of statutory redundancy calculations, see the Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory reform website: http://www.direct.gov.uk/redundancy.dsb

Please note: If you are offered another suitable job at UCL before your last day of service, you will not be entitled to a redundancy payment (unless the new job commences more than 4 weeks after your last day of service).  If an employee is given a redundancy payment that they are not entitled to they must repay it.  If a job is offered to a UCL employee after their last day of service, there should be a two week break in service before they start the new role.
