Can I Be Made Redundant Whilst on Shared Parental Leave?

Share :


Yes, you can be made redundant whilst on shared parental leave. You will have the same redundancy rights as your colleagues.

Your Rights

  • You must be offered any suitable alternative vacancy.
  • The alternative employment must be offered under a new contract.
  • The new contract must begin on the day after the previous contract ends.
  • The terms of the new contract must not be substantially less favourable than the previous contract.
  • The new role must be suitable for you and appropriate for you to do in the circumstances.
  • Where a suitable vacancy exists and is not offered, dismissal will be automatically unfair.
