ABSTRACT
This article addresses issues involved in making bumping or transferred redundancy. There is a need for employers to consider alternative employment for the employee to avoid a claim for unfair dismissal and to ensure the fairness of bumping dismissals. Factors to consider when deciding whether or not to bump include whether there is a vacancy, how different the two jobs are, and the difference in remuneration between the two jobs. Also included are principles that employers should follow when identifying the selection pool for redundancy.
