Redundancies & restructures are sometimes unavoidable. We can help you to deal with them fairly and efficiently

REDUNDANCIES & RESTRUCTURES

Business redundancies and restructures are sometimes unavoidable and can be stressful and time consuming. We have the experience to ensure you get the best outcome for your business.

Redundancy is a form of dismissal and may arise where the requirements to carry out work of a particular kind is ceasing or diminishing or, the place where the work is being carried out is closing. Before a decision is made to progress with a redundancy procedure, a business should, where possible try to avoid or minimise the need for redundancies. For example:

  • Restrict overtime
  • Reduce the use of temporary employees
  • Reorganise work rather then recruit additional employees.

It is key to remember that employees with two years’ service or more including fixed term contract employees have the right to not be unfairly dismissed on the grounds of redundancy (or any other unfair grounds) and have the right to statutory redundancy pay.
