Redundancy has become a complex area of law where the simplest of errors can potentially be costly for employers. This session is intended for HR professionals who have some knowledge of the law on redundancy and who may require to conduct such exercises in the future.
Our award winning Employment team intends to cover the practicalities of a redundancy exercise including:
- Individual and collective consultation
- Voluntary redundancy exercises
- The principles of bumping and employees on maternity leave
- Entitlement to time off to look for other work and redundancy pay
- Lay-offs and short term working
- Renewal of contract, re-engagement and trial periods
As well as covering the up-to-date law and recent employment tribunal decisions on work place redundancies, delegates will leave the training session with a raft of style letters, suggested agendas for consultation meetings and associated documents which should allow the delegates to carry out a lawful, robust and efficient redundancy exercise. Simon will also give some tips on how to limit risk during the process so that, if faced with an employment tribunal claim in the future, this can be resisted swiftly and effectively.
