What happens if you are being made redundant and recieve another job offer?

Year Published: 2015

If an employee who is under notice of redundancy receives an offer of a job from another modification order body before the termination of their employment and takes it up within four weeks of the end of the old employment, there will be no dismissal for redundancy payment purposes.

If an employee does take on a new job with a modification order body in these circumstances, the provisions relating to a trial period in the ERA (Education Rights Act) will apply. Therefore, if the employee decides not to continue with the job during the first four weeks they will be able to terminate the contract and receive a redundancy payment from the old employer.
