Restructuring and Redundancy

In these difficult times, many businesses are finding they need to restructure and reorganise their workforce. It is vital to ensure this is handled as smoothly as possible to protect the business and avoid the risk of claims. We have particular expertise in TUPE and collective redundancies, but whatever the scale of your proposed changes, we can give practical advice on the process you and your managers need to follow in relation to matters such as:

  • Is there a redundancy situation?
  • Changing terms and conditions of employment
  • Consultation – how long for and what is involved?
  • Are selection criteria required and if so, what should they be?
  • Bumping
  • Enhanced redundancy payments
  • Potential relocation
  • Restructures and reorganisation
  • Do you need to pool your staff?
  • Redeployment – are you required to offer alternative roles?
  • Appeals against redundancy
  • Settlement Agreements

We have many years of experience between us of advising on redundancy and restructure situations in organisations of all sizes. We can help support you and your managers to enable you to handle these difficult situations as smoothly as possible.
