REDUNDANCY

Should your business need to reduce overhead costs we can take you through the redundancy process, guiding and advising you at each stage.

We understand that this can be an extremely difficult and emotional time for all involved and can advise you on the employment law framework with regard to redundancy, lay-off and short time working.  
We can also discuss possible alternative cost reduction options such as reviewing budgets, employee costs, productivity improvements, working patterns or pay freezes.

  • Implementing lay-offs or short time working
  • Voluntary redundancies
  • Identifying selection criteria
  • Redundancy pay calculations
  • Suitable alternatives and trial periods
  • Handling appeals
