    Abstract

    Submitted for the publication on 16 June 2012. Currently under review.
    The article is an even more extended version of the contribution, in Italian, approved for the publication on Diritto delle Relazioni Industriali (see PUPE, REF proposals)
    The dismissal by way of redundancy in Britain is analysed in this contribution in both its legislative pillars and the most recent judicial stances; however, the discussion goes beyond the mere revision of secondary sources, as the Authors propose to compare the British jurisprudence to the Italian one, a jurisdiction that has just recently introduced in its legislative body an up-dated, albeit probably imperfect, form of redundancy (the redundancy for economic reasons or giustificato motivo oggettivo).
    The results of the discussion (a pure comparative analysis in law, within the area of the employment law) are quite ground-breaking, as a theory is corroborated that the British legislation in the matter of the redundancy should be used as a successful yardstick for the Italian counterpart, particularly as regards the possibility (rectius the necessity) to extend this legislative tool, now tenuously applicable to the private sector workers, to the public ones as well.
