    At the end of the week I had planned to give two employees notice of redundancy, this morning one of the employees has given in their notice to say they are starting a job in two weeks. So the question is, do I now need to give that employee notice of redundancy?

    No you do not, it would be prudent to hold off on any further action until that employee has left and has started in their new role.

    No. Were you planning redundancy payments? If so, be sure to formally record acceptance of the notice today/tomorrow - registered An Post letter to his home address - to ensure that there'll be no problems when the employee leaving for the new job becomes aware he's lost out on a redundancy payment.
