Statutory redundancy pay is calculated according to a formula based on age, length of service and pay. Firstly, you calculate your length of service. Then, counting backwards from the date that your employment ended, you would be entitled to:
A maximum of 20 years can be taken into account when calculating a statutory redundancy payment. Your gross week’s pay at the relevant date is capped at the statutory maximum, which is increased in February each year.
In addition, you should also receive a payment in respect of your notice period (if you are not being asked to work your notice) and a payment for any holiday entitlement that has accrued to you which you have not managed to take.
Your employer should also give you reasonable amounts of time off work, if you have job interviews to attend during your notice period.
