Redundancy is one of the grounds for termination allowed by labor laws in the Philippines.
It exists when the service capability of the workforce is in excess of what is reasonably needed to meet the demands of the enterprise.
A redundant position is one rendered superfluous by any number of factors, such as:
- over hiring of workers,
- decreased volume of business,
- dropping of a particular product line previously manufactured by the company, or
- phasing out of a service activity previously undertaken by the business.
