When your business needs to make changes it may result in redundancies. This could be because of financial necessity, or to restructure to make your business more effective.

It is important that in any redundancy process, you engage with staff early and fairly. We can guide you through that consultation process and advise on the justification for any redundancies.

A failure to follow a fair process could lead to an employment tribunal claim, with any fair reason for redundancy being deemed an unfair dismissal due to poor procedure.
