Redundancy and reorganisation
Hopefully your business is going from strength to strength, but there may come a time when particular roles or tasks are no longer required or need to be carried out differently.
How we can help
You need to follow a reasonable procedure if you are considering dismissing employees due to redundancy. We can assist you to minimise the risk of claims by:
- Advising whether there is a redundancy situation
- Providing practical guidance regarding procedures
- Preparing selection matrixes
- Calculating redundancy payments
If you are in a situation where redundancies may be necessary, it is crucial that you take advice at an early stage. However, if you have already taken action which may result in a claim, we can consider whether the risk can be managed by use of a Settlement Agreement.
We have advised many employers in relation to redundancy situations and have assisted with minimising disruption to the business and avoiding claims for unfair dismissal. Please do not hesitate to contact us for straightforward practical guidance during this stressful time.
