Employment Redundancy and the Law - Unfair Dismissals
The redundancy process is governed by various pieces of employment legislation which should be considered carefully when considering redundancies in your organisation.
The Employment Appeals Tribunal has seen a huge increase in the number of Unfair Dismissals claims being taken by employees against their employer for unfair selection for redundancy and non-payment of redundancy. The approach to selection for redundnacy needs to be transparent. In some situations the "last in first out " (LIFO) may not be the best approach as key skills may be lost from busy units or from the organsiation as a whole which may affect the ability of the company to avoid further redundancies. Consideration needs to be given to union agreements and also custom and practice in the organisation. We can help draw up skills matrix that meets the skills needs esential to competitiveness as well as being robust to meet the requirements of fora such as The Employment Appeals Tribunal.
