About the book

When employees are made redundant they often have no idea about their rights, how to negotiate a severance package or get compensation and how to move on afterwards to a new job.

The Redundancy Survival Guide will take you through what can often be a traumatic time, with step by step advice on establishing where you stand legally, planning future options, maximising the benefits available, assessing skills and lifestyle options and finding a new job. It will help you to feel reassured and see redundancy as an opportunity and a way of making positive changes to your life.
