Our employment lawyers are highly experienced at advising businesses and individuals in redundancy situations.
We provide advice to employers on carrying out redundancies always ensuring that our advice is always tailored to the situation. We consider the specific needs of the business when giving advice on the procedure for making redundancy dismissals.
We have particular experience advising in relation to collective redundancies where there are strict rules regarding mandatory processes for collective consultation with employees and their representatives. Failure to comply with these procedural requirements can lead to civil and criminal penalties.
We also advise in relation to redundancy and reorganisation proposals arising out of corporate restructuring and business transfers.
We also advise employees facing a redundancy process on the best way to achieve their desired outcome, whether that is to remain in the organisation, negotiate an amicable exit or bring a claim against the employer. We assist employees in preparing for redundancy consultation meetings, appeal meetings and in raising grievances.
We are experienced in representing employees and employers in employment tribunal proceedings arising out of redundancy dismissals.
