Redundancy Services

Redundancy is a reason for dismissal from employment that can often occur when there is a downturn in sales, new systems replace manual workers, or the company is closing, being restructured or moving elsewhere.

If you’re faced with the difficult decision of whether to make redundancies or not, Neathouse Partners can help.

Managing Redundancy

Employers need to follow a fair redundancy process if employees have worked for them for at least 2 years by the time their job ends.
A fair redundancy procedure for any business will include:
  • Giving as much notice as possible to the affected employees and their representatives.
  • Consultation with the employees and their representatives throughout the process. At least one meeting with each employee at risk individually before confirming your final redundancy decision. This meeting should cover, why redundancies are being made, why the employee is being considered for redundancy, if other jobs are available, and answer any questions that they may have.
  • Your consideration of whether alternative employment options in the company are available to those at risk.
  • Let employees know how you will choose people for redundancy. You must adopt and apply a fair selection process for the redundancy pool. Candidates cannot be at risk of redundancy due to any protected characteristics that they possess or personality clashes.
  • Telling employees how long the decision will take. Note that if you are planning to make more than 20 redundancies, special consultation rules apply that can be very costly if not followed correctly.
  • Sharing details of the meetings that employees can attend to discuss the restructuring and when they will take place.
  • Advising how employees can appeal if they have been chosen for redundancy.
