Restructuring and Redundancies 9th September Briefing

2015-07-07 Philip posted:

As the economic outlook remains mixed, most businesses will keep an eye on the current structure of their organisation and regularly review whether they might need to make changes. Responding to changing business needs is essential for keeping afloat, and remains high on the agenda for many businesses and their HR managers. Balancing legal obligations towards staff with the needs of your business requires care and skill - getting it wrong costs businesses an estimated £30 million a year in the UK, not to mention wasted management time. Even where workforce head count is not being reduced, there is often a need to review existing terms and conditions of employment.

A successful restructuring or redundancy exercise takes planning and preparation. A badly executed strategy can lead to delay, low morale, distrust, absenteeism as well as costly and time consuming claims against you in an Employment Tribunal.

Learn how your business can deal with restructuring and redundancies at our next Renney and Co Employment Briefing

We will be covering:

  • What is a genuine redundancy?
  • Who should you include in the selection pool?
  • How to devise appropriate selection criteria
  • Scoring employees against criteria
  • The role of collective and individual consultation
  • The duty to offer suitable alternative employment
  • When to use trial periods
  • Redundancy payments
  • Considerations on restructuring
  • Changing terms and conditions of employment
  • Pitfalls and how to avoid unfair dismissals

If you are a business owner, HR professional, or a director or manager who deals with employees, this informal briefing will guide you through the latest developments in employment law and help you understand your obligations about restructuring and redundancies.

About the speakers: Jennifer Renney-Butland and Philip McCabe are both qualified solicitors specialising in employment law and have many years of experience in employment tribunals and advising businesses on employment law issues. We hope you can join us.
