Making cutbacks or restructuring can be every bit as stressful for a company as for the employees affected. Care needs to be taken to ensure that the correct processes are followed in order to try and prevent claims for unfair dismissal or discrimination occurring.

The law concerning redundancy and consultation periods can be complex and it is vital for any employer contemplating making roles redundant to ensure there is a credible and genuine business case in existence to explain the decisions taken.

We can help you with this and are able to discuss with you any concerns you may have surrounding the redundancy process and how to implement a redundancy programme. With your objectives in mind, we can navigate you towards your desired outcome as far as possible.
