Restructuring and Redundancy

Restructuring, reorganisation and redundancy seems to be a constant part of commercial life these days. When business is in a down turn or sometimes when doing well, perhaps with the introduction of new technology, there is often a need to reduce a workforce.  It is vital to ensure this is handled professionally and smoothly to protect the business and avoid the risk of claims by disgruntled employees.

Using our considerable experience we can recommend the right strategic approach and ensure your organisation’s full compliance with HR best practice and employment law.  Our advice is bespoke to you and will reflect your way of doing things and attitude towards risk.

Whatever level of support you require we can help you -  from answering one-off general queries to implementing a large scale redundancy process.  This could include:-

  • Working with you to plan your strategy at the outset
  • ensuring that any selection pools and criteria are the most appropriate and lowest risk
  • providing and reviewing key documentation and letters
  • resolving any concerns raised by employees during the consultation period
  • providing advice with regard to dismissals and subsequent appeals
  • dealing with any claims which arise
