Redundancy can be a highly distressing experience. As such, it requires sensitive handling by the employer to ensure fair treatment of the redundant employee as well maintain the productivity and morale of the remaining workforce. Redundancy legislation is complex, and employers need to understand their obligations, including employees’ rights and the correct procedures to follow.
At King’s Cross Barristers, Our Employment team can help both employers and employees with redundancy. We can advise you on the procedure from start to finish including: consultations, pools of comparison, selection criteria and suitable alternative employment. We also specialise in settlement agreements.
