In a tough market sometimes it is necessary to make redundancies. Whether it is a reduced requirement for employees, the closure of a workplace or business, difficult decisions may need to be made. A sound redundancy procedure and proper guidance throughout can help your business avoid claims for unfair dismissal (amongst other things).
It may be that you are making one employee redundant or many. In doing so you could be struggling to identify the “pool for selection” or grappling with how to apply an “objective selection criteria” to those in the “pool”. You may be trying to get to grips with what constitutes genuine consultation and wondering how to identify and offer any suitable alternative employment. As the redundancy experts we can help.
