Talking Employment Law: What to do if you’re at risk of redundancy

Unfortunately, in this difficult economic period, now officially a recession, businesses of all sizes are being forced to make redundancies, some for the first time. This is inevitably a stressful time for both employees and management at these organisations.  As with all unfamiliar processes, knowing what to expect and how to make the most of the situation can only help.

In this third podcast in the ‘Talking Employment Law’ series, Harry Berryman and Rebecca Dowle, members of the employment team at Clarkslegal, will discuss and provide some  guidance on what is a fair process when selecting employees for redundancy. This includes:

  • How do employers decide the pool?
  • Consultation process
  • Selection process
  • Alternatives to redundancy

If you are an employer or employee and have any questions about the redundancy process, please contact our employment team, who would be happy to assist you.
