Abstract

The number of rendundancies is growing at a steadily increasing rate. Although a great deal has been written about it in the popular press, not enough systematic work has been done to assess the impact of this phenomenon on the psychological state of the redundant worker, his family and the wider community. It was felt, therefore, that it might be useful here to review what is available, to help chart the direction of future work in this very important and currently relevant area.
