Redundancies and restructuring

We are living in interesting times, where businesses are frequently reviewing their structure, their costs and their focus.  On occasion, this results in businesses changing the way in which they operate.  This can have a direct impact on staff, raising the prospect of restructuring and redundancies.

Advising employers

Are you considering:

  • individual or collective redundancies;
  • changing your employees’ hours of work, place of work or other terms and conditions;
  • lay-offs or short-time working; or
  • buying or selling a business (or part of one)?

If so, then it is crucial that you take advice on the best approach to adopt.  It can be a stressful experience for all concerned and the process can appear daunting.  However, if it is planned properly and ahead of time, the risks to your business can be significantly reduced.

Let us guide you through the process and advise you on all the steps that you need to take.  We can devise the correct procedure, draft the necessary letters, calculate any relevant redundancy entitlements and ensure that you carefully manage the risks to your business.

Advising employees

If you are at risk of being made redundant (or have recently been made redundant) and are concerned about how you have been treated, then we can help.  We can advise you on your rights and help you to make the right decisions about what to do next.
