A redundancy occurs only when an employee is dismissed and the reason for his dismissal is that his job is no longer available at the place where he works (because the factory that employs him was closed, for example) or where his employer no longer requires the same number of employees to do what he does (because of a fall in demand for the product he makes, or changes in technology, for example). An employee’s job is redundant if the business that employs him closes down or closes down at the location where he works, or if he becomes surplus to the requirements of the business.
