Redundancy and reorganisation projects can be complex. If not managed correctly, pitfalls can derail the process and potentially lead to costly and time-consuming litigation, as well as have a detrimental impact on staff morale. If your business is considering large or small-scale redundancies, changing employees’ contracts, or facing another form of reorganisation, it is essential to get the right advice.
Our team provides employers with sound, practical business guidance combined with the relevant legal expertise. Our pragmatic approach and extensive experience in the planning and implementation of redundancy and reorganisation exercises means that we can help ensure the process runs smoothly. This includes developing effective selection procedures, conducting individual and collective consultation, and providing drafting input in relation to all relevant documents and communications. We can also provide strategic advice on possible settlement negotiations and agreements.
The need for cost saving does not always necessitate redundancies. We can work with you to plan alternatives to making staff redundant, including changing terms and conditions, reducing hours and pay, and deferring bonus payments.
We continue to advise beyond the project’s end, ensuring that any unforeseen hitches are resolved with minimal disruption to you and your business.
