Redundancy Pay Calculator
Are you uncertain on your redundancy pay?
If you have been employed for more than 2 years you are entitled to a redundancy payment. Length of service is measured from your first working day to your last working day (including notice periods).
Statutory minimum is;
* 0.5 week’s pay for each full year worked when you’re under 22
*1 week’s pay for each full year worked when you’re between 22 and 41
*1.5 week’s pay for each full year worked when you’re 41 or older
Pay is capped at £538 (£560 in Northern Ireland) per week. Length of service is capped at 20 years.
Your employer may pay more on top of this so check your contract!

You’re not entitled to statutory redundancy pay if:
- your employer offers to keep you on
- your employer offers you suitable alternative work which you refuse without good reason
- former registered dock workers (covered by other arrangements) and share fishermen
- crown servants, members of the armed forces or police services
- apprentices who are not employees at the end of their training
- a domestic servant who is a member of the employer’s immediate family
Being dismissed for misconduct does not count as redundancy, so you would not get redundancy pay if this happened.
