REDUNDANCIES: MAKE SURE YOU GET IT RIGHT 

“I just don’t need him any longer. Surely that’s all there is to it?” 
“The role’s gone. Do I really have to consult?” 
“I thought last in first out was still the way to go. How have I ended up with this claim?” 

Don’t be complacent… 

There are traps everywhere. Potentially expensive ones. Are you sure you can prove you need fewer employees? Are your consultation plans adequate? Have you cast your selection pool net wide enough, and are your selection criteria bullet proof? And what about that new role – is it a vacancy in all but name? 

Be prepared… 

Take a step back, give it some careful thought and take some judicious professional advice. Talk to the affected employees. Explain your position, listen to the reaction, and make a reasonable decision. Think about softening the blow – a financial incentive with a well timed Settlement Agreement may make all the difference. 

…and if in doubt, give us a call. 

You won’t want to relive an already painful process in the employment tribunal. Especially in the post-Covid era where you have equally important issues to address. Get in touch now and we’ll help you avoid the problems.
