Redundancy solutions for employers
Redundancy occurs when there is no longer a requirement for employees to do work of a particular kind. This could be for a number of reasons including a downturn in work or a business restructure. Getting it wrong can result in costly claims for unfair dismissal and/or discrimination.
Why choose Astute HR?
We’ve worked with both employers and employees in these cases, we understand both sides of the story, and that helps us to anticipate, plan and find the right solution for you.
For a redundancy to be fair in law, you must have a genuine redundancy situation and must follow a fair procedure. This procedure includes a meaningful and reasonable consultation period, an objective selection criteria, consideration of suitable alternative employment and redundancy must be the last reasonable resort.
If you want redundancies to be dealt with as quickly and as cost effectively as possible, we’ll use our expert skills to achieve this for you for an agreed fixed price, and keep it out of the Employment Tribunal.
How we can help:
Redundancy procedures can be stressful and upsetting, both during the process itself and when dealing with the aftermath, especially if the employees feel they have been treated unfairly. As employment law and HR specialists we can help you:
- Prepare for any upcoming meetings to ensure that you follow the correct procedures and to avoid unfair dismissal claims against you.
- Get employee entitlements right to ensure they are receiving the correct final outcome, correct redundancy payments and to avoid costly/time consuming claims against you.
- Decide what to do next if employees take legal action against you. We can help you defeat those claims and/or minimise your costs.
