If you are being or have been made redundant,
did they do it fairly and what can you do about the situation.
Most people are dismissed on the grounds of redundancy.
The question is, was it a genuine redundancy?
For it to be a genuine redundancy, the work
that you undertook and the requirement for you to do it must
cease or diminish. This means the job has either gone or there
is less need for that particular work.

business is taken over and run by someone else doing the same

have not obtained the written reasons for dismissal i.e. a
letter stating why you have been dismissed, then ask for it
