UK leading resources for redundancy advise report a four year analysis report that September is the month most often chosen by employers to implement redundancy programmes. The accumulated data show that employees are relatively secure during the August summer holiday period, and in December, on the run up to Christmas Holiday. After the holiday however, the threat of redundancy is at its highest. Enquiries to the Redundancy Insurance increase by as much as 40% during September and by similar amounts in January of the year.

Redundancy Expert Ken Westwood commenting on the topic said, "Redundancy is often a cruel and unexpected blow and it seems clear that employers don't wish to announce the news during the traditional holiday periods. Though some employees will have been grateful for the break before the news hit, others will wonder, why they couldn't have been told before the expense of holidays and Christmas was incurred."
