|German to English translations [PRO]|
Bus/Financial - Law (general) / employment law / HR
|German term or phrase: betriebsbedingte Kündigung|
|Technical term for the termination of employment due to reasons within the enterprise (e.g. business problems).|
|termination of employment for operational reasons|
I'd go with one of the options offered by Dietl/Lorenz or Romain:
"termination of employment for operational reasons" (Dietl/Lorenz)
"business structure dismissal"; "dismissal due to operational requirements" (Romain)
"Redundancy" has the same connotation => (betriebsbedingte) Entlassung wg. Arbeitsmangels, Umstrukturierung (Dietl/Lorenz), I prefer, however, the very first option as "redundancy" - much like betriebsbedingte Kündigung - has become a set concept under British law, involving a number of specific requirements that do not necessarily have an equivalent under the German concept of betriebsbedingte Kündigung (and vice versa).
To avoid the impression that both concepts are identical I would avoid a term describing an existing concept under British law and opt for the translation that reflects the German concept without purporting to be the British equivalent.
Having said that, this only applies to contracts / legal documents - there is nothing wrong with using the term "redundancy" in a newspaper article, for example.

|Thanks again - as I pointed out in my query, I was specifically looking for a legal 'terminus technicus', which is why this one fits best.|

given notice for business reasons
It would be easier to have the whole sentence. You can also say business related redundancy or made redundant for business reasons
