This facility calculates the amount of UK Statutory Redundancy Pay due to an employee on dismissal. Select Age at Dismissal, and enter Years of Service and Weekly Pay. Then click "CALCULATE" to show the entitlement according to the statutory calculation.

Age is in full years and Years of Service are full completed years. You must have completed at least two full years of service to be entitled to statutory redundancy pay, and the calculation is based on a maximum of twenty years service. If the Weekly Pay is greater than £464 (from 6th April 2014) then the calculated amount will be limited to a figure based on a statutory maximum for weekly pay of £464. (Prior to 6th April 2014 the previous limit was £450). The calculated amount is based on a formula involving these elements of age, service and pay, as laid down by the UK government. Although age is a factor, upper and lower age limits were removed in 2006 for compatibility with age discrimination legislation.
