Date: Thu 21 Jan

With further restrictions meaning an uncertain future for many hard-hit businesses, difficult decisions may need to be made regarding your workforce. Join the team behind Bira Legal for expert insight and practical advice.

Hosted by Ellis Whittam’s Employment Law Director, James Tamm, this virtual session will walk you through the essential elements of a fair redundancy process, including:

  • The importance of putting together a water-tight business case and rationale;
  • How to determine whether you are in fact in a redundancy situation;
  • How to devise a fair pool for selection and identify those at risk;
  • If you are making 20 or more staff redundant, the need for collective consultation and the formal process of electing representatives;

  • The duty to consider alternative employment for those at risk; and
  • Redundancy pay or the use of settlement agreements.
