Redundancy information for employers
We can help you provide support and information to staff facing redundancy or retrenchment.
If you're considering redundancy or retrenchment of 15 or more staff, you need to give us written notification. You need to copy the details of the Notice to the Department of Human Services of proposed dismissals document to your company's letterhead in Microsoft Word format, including:
- the name of your company
- the registered address, and
- the number of affected staff and employment types
Submit your notification
Fill in the form in Microsoft Word format and submit it to the Third Party Contact Centre of our National Business Gateway.
If you need help, call the Third Party Contact Centre line.
Support for employers
Our Financial Information Service can help your affected staff. We can organise information sessions that can help your staff facing redundancy with investment and financial concerns.
You can request an information session when you:
- provide your written notification, or
- call our Financial Information Service line
If you call us, say Financial Information Service when prompted.
Support for your staff
Tell your affected staff to call our Job seekers line and register for employment services. We can help them even if they aren't eligible for payments. This includes access to:
- employment services
- income support payments, and
- social workers
