(b)the amount of the relevant redundancy payment,

whichever is less.

(2) The reference in sub-paragraph (1)(b) to the amount of the relevant redundancy payment is a reference to the amount of the redundancy payment which the employer would have been liable to pay to the employee if—

(a)the order in force in respect of the agreement as mentioned in section 42(1A)(b) had not been made;

(b)the circumstances in which the employer’s payment is payable had been such that the employer was liable to pay a redundancy payment to the employee in those circumstances;
