Employers owe their employees a duty to take care of their health and safety. Health and safety legislation specifies the steps employers must take to comply with their duty. This involves adopting a policy, undertaking risk assessments and taking such measures as considered necessary to reduce risks. This process can be time consuming and complicated but it is no excuse to ignore problems for these reasons.

Enhanced Redundancy Payments

Many organisations make enhanced redundancy payments in accordance with a non-contractual discretionary redundancy policy. The policy is never published but payments are repeatedly made every time a round of redundancies are announced. The payments are usually calculated in accordance with the lenght of service and multiplied by a number of weeks or half weeks. A problem could arise for the organisation if the company simply continues to make the enhanced payments without first considering the discretion because the policy could become a term of employment through custom and practice. The same principle applies to bonus payments under a non contractual discretionary bonus scheme. Unless employers exercise discretion before each payment, disputes can arise if a payment is not made or a payment is made but at a lower rate than anticipated. This frequently happens at the termination of employment. The risk for the employer is that if an employee made a successful claim in relation to the right to receive the payment, this would open the floodgates for all other employees who might be in line for a payment. In addition, any bcontractual right to an enhanced redundancy payment or bonus would be difficult to withdraw without the consent of the employee.
