Redundancies and Restructuring
Restructuring and redundancies are increasingly common in what is an increasingly competitive global market. In our post Brexit world, at some point, your business, whether a fast growing start up or a stable well established organisation, will have to go through the process of restructuring in response to growth or streamlining.
This may involve making a commercial decision to let some of your staff go. As well as being difficult on a human level for all involved, managing a redundancy process is a legal minefield. Whether you are laying off a few staff or undertaking a large scale closure it is essential that you follow the correct process to minimise any disruption to your business; the goods and / or services you offer; protect the reputation of your business; and minimise the risk of any Employment Tribunal claims.
Our expert team of employment lawyers have considerable experience of advising employers on redundancies ranging from the dismissal of a member of the admin support team to large scale redundancies for FTSE listed companies laying off hundreds of staff.
