Redundancy: Fact sheet

Within any organisation making the decision to exit employees from the workplace is a difficult but often necessary part of running and maintaining a business. Although sometimes it is part and parcel of running an organisation the redundancy consultation process can be a minefield and getting critical redundancy rules wrong can prove very expensive, especially if an employee brings an employment tribunal case against you for unfair dismissal.

When considering redundancy, it is important that the end goal of the restructure is to retain the best employees which can sustain the success of your business while maintaining dignity of the employees leaving the business as well as ensuring that they treated fairly.

Prior to making any decision on engaging in a restructure of the business it is vital to be objective and have the focus on the business case while establishing the reasons for the redundancies being made.
