Is the notice period considered for the continuous employment period required for redundancy pay?
E.g. an employee receives a notice of termination a day before they complete one year of employment.
The notice period is one week.
Would the employee be entitled to redundancy pay?
What about if the employer decides to pay the week in lieu of notice and releases the employee at immediately?

Thanks

If you work the one week notice period, that counts as continuous service.

If you are paid out the notice and not required to work, the 'extra week' is not counted as service.

Note some businesses may not have to pay redundancy (depending on size, award or EA)
