Calculate the statutory redundancy pay due to your employee

Employees being made redundant with two or more years' continuous service have the right to receive:

  • a statutory redundancy payment
  • a written statement setting out the payment amount and how it was calculated

You can use our interactive tool to calculate the statutory redundancy payment due to your employee(s) and create a personalised written statement. This can be saved on your own system or given straight to the employee.

The payment due to each employee under the statutory redundancy payment scheme is based on:

  • the employee's age
  • the employee's amount of continuous service, subject to the minimum of two years and a maximum of 20 years
  • the employee's weekly gross pay - up to a limit of £350 for redundancies up to and including 31 January 2010

Note that you should only use this tool to calculate payments for redundancies that occur on or after 1 February 2009 but before 1 February 2010.

Also note that this tool is based on the statutory scheme and does not apply to employers who offer redundancy payments over the statutory maximum.

Go straight to the first question.

Once the required information has been collected, this tool should take around five minutes to complete.
