Redundancy

Question

Let's say you think you might get made redundant. Let's say it's because you don't get along with your manager. You work for a big reputable company and worked there 15 years in Belgium.

What kind of compensation could one expect the company is obliged to pay

No compensation is due with redundancy, BUT if you are individually made redundant, then you have to be given the legal notice:

In your case, it should be about 15 months. In practice, you're likely to get 0 to 3 months notice and the rest paid to you in a lump sum.

This "lump sum" can be seen as a form of compensation.
What is quite common is to ask to get fired, and then negotiate a package.
(Usually less than with a regular redundancy).

That way you also have rights regarding unemployment etc.

It's quite difficult for employers to make people redundant from what I hear if there is a union at work join it now to get help.
