There are a lot of misconceptions around restructures and redundancies in relation to what is legally sound, what is ethically correct and what is best for the business. Without the right approach, companies can leave themselves exposed to risk and may also severely damage employee morale. During difficult times, it is important to get this process right from the start, rather than clean up a mess later on.
Why do you need it?
There are particular legislative requirements that need to be fulfilled in any redundancy situation. If you have a case of unfair dismissal filed against you, it will be important that you have fulfilled these requirements. Many business owners hear of large companies suddenly laying off masses of staff in one day and believe that this is all that took place and that they can follow suit safely. This is a dangerous assumption to make and is usually a risky approach.
Who is it is for?
For any business looking to undertake a restructure and especially if this involves potential redundancies, you should engage the right professional help.
What do we offer?
- Participate in meetings with managers and staff
- Maintaining records of meetings, including diary notes and completion of other documentation (e.g. letters)
- Advice and support to the business owner and/or manager required to implement the change
- Analysis of risk and steps to mitigate
- Outplacement support via our partner Inject (if required) to assist your employee finding new employment
Our approach is about managing the process with you in order to minimise risk, minimise the adverse impact on the existing team and to assist the business with achieving its overall objectives.
