Staff with 2 or more years of service are entitled to a redundancy
payment if they are made redundant from UCL.
Statutory redundancy pay
The legal minimum payment is called statutory redundancy pay.
Statutory redundancy pay must be paid if an employee has been
continuously employed for at least 2 years. UCL's enhanced redundancy
package (below) is based on statutory redundancy.
Statutory redundancy payments are calculated according to: length
of service (up to a maximum of 20 years), age, and
weekly pay, on which there is an upper limit or
"cap" (currently £430). For most UCL staff, who
are over 21, employees are eligible for 1 week’s pay (up to
£430) for each complete year of service up to and including
the age of 40, and 1.5 week’s pay for each year of employment
- Up to the age of 21 - 0.5 week’s pay for each completed
year of service
- 22 - 40 years of age - 1 week’s pay per year worked over
- 41+ years of age - 1.5 weeks’ pay per year worked over
