Whether changes simply need to be made in your business structure or difficulties need to be addressed, at some point many employers will need to consider the potential for redundancy or reorganisation.
Employment law is such that in circumstances where employment contracts need to be varied, hours shortened, roles adjusted or staff dismissed, for example, the employer is under a strict duty to act fairly and consistently. The failure to follow a proper procedure can result in an unfair dismissal and a greater financial impact on the employer in defending and/or settling such a claim.
Claims can be avoided by proper planning and proper involvement of the staff concerned. We can guide you through the process and help formulate a framework to deal with the reorganisation and/or redundancy process in the hope of lessening the impact of an already difficult situation.
