Being fired normally means theres been some misconduct which is why the employee is removed from the company. Redundancy means the employee's job no longer exists and they are normally paid a compensation package. If someone is fired, they wouldn't receive compensation.Thank you, yes many of those came up in the exercise either through my questions or just general exploration of the scenario. And you're right it comes down to just commercial sense, they didn't ask for any legal stuff, though I have to be honest, I understood the difference between "redundancy" and having a "settlement package" far too late in the process - speaking of which, what did you mean when you said you're unclear if he was being fired or made redundant; aren't they the same?
