If you are an employee with at least two years' service in your job, you are entitled to a statutory redundancy payment. This is normally paid by your employer, but the State will pay if your employer has gone bust.
The statutory payment is the minimum you must receive, but some employers pay more than the minimum compensation when making someone's job redundant. Details of any contractual redundancy scheme should be either in your contract of employment, a separate redundancy document or a collective agreement. If there is no pre-existing agreement to an enhanced redundancy payment, your union may be able to negotiate this when redundancies are proposed,
But if you are only getting the legal minimum, this is what you will get:
A maximum of 20 years' service is taken into account and there is a limit to what is defined as a week's pay for statutory redundancy purposes. It is calculated based on your salary at the time of the redundancy even if, for example, you have worked full time for most of your employment and only recently reduced your hours to part time.
You can find out how much you should get from the Gov.uk redundancy pay calculator.
