Employers are required to file a form HR1 where they are proposing to dismiss 20 or more employees at a single establishment. HR1 forms received by Redundancy Payments Service during October 2020 indicated 51,195 proposed redundancies.

The aggregate number may include proposed dismissals due to insolvency, restructuring of a solvent/continuing business, changes to terms and conditions, or proposed relocation of employees, for example. It should also be noted that a proposal to make a given number of dismissals does not necessarily result in all or any of the proposed dismissals occurring.
