Officially, there's a selection pool but it'll generally be determined by how pissed off your manager is with you when 'efficiency savings' (that's lay offs to us normal people) need to be made.
The best modern use of the phrase 'crying all the way to the bank'.
Manager: Profits have fallen and we need to make some efficiency savings. Unfortunately (this is shit, your boss doesnt give a fuck about you) your post has been selected for redundancy.
Employee: Oh no. This is terrible news.
Will you pay my notice in lieu?
Employee: What's the payout?
Manager: A month for every year of service. You'll get £20,000 tax free.
Employee finds another job and has a pile of cash in their account.

See also, half-a-redundancy which refers to a woman that is either hot or Asian, not both.
Ex.2: Let's go down to Chinatown and scope out some redundancies.
Ex3. Yeah, she's hot, but half-a-redundancy
