Topic: Carrying Out A Redundancy Programme

Getting it right – including the right pool, fair selection criteria, consultation and dismissal 

With the economy struggling and the outcome of Brexit unknown many businesses are looking to streamline, redundancies remain a real possibility. Employers need to be careful how they identify the pool of employees from which redundancies will be made and what constitutes reasonable/fair selection criteria. 

Chris will take delegates through the redundancy process paying particular attention to what employers/HR professionals should consider when identifying the pool, the consultation process and the dismissal. 

Chris said: We speak to clients everyday who are having to make hard decisions about the future of their employees. Redundancy is often the last resort but its essential businesses know the facts about what they can and can’t do. The aim of this event is to inform and educate so delegates have a practical understanding of the law.
