There are many reasons why a business may require restructuring such as a merger or an acquisition, loss of business or changes in technology.
If a business restructuring entails redundancies, all affected employees must be consulted individually in accordance with current employment legislation. If you are proposing to make redundant more than 19 employees within a 90 day period, this will be a collective redundancy and consultation with employee representatives will also be necessary.
Handling business reorganisation and redundancy exercises legitimately will minimise the risk of claims, fines and damages awards. We will assist you in managing your reorganisation or redundancy programmes sensitively and in accordance with current employment legislation whilst also prioritising your commercial deadlines.
