Redundancy: How to Conduct a Fair Process
- This event has passed.
About the event
Whilst the economic outlook may not be as austere as expected, the impact of inflation, interest rates and energy prices has put pressure on many businesses. You might be considering staff redundancies and whilst all businesses need to make tough commercial decisions from time to time, it is never easy delivering bad news to employees.
Employment solicitors from Longmores will explain how sound planning and preparation at an early stage is essential. Using a case study, they will describe the steps to follow to ensure you conduct a fair process to give you confidence in making the right commercial decisions for the future success of your business.
- Rationalising the need for fewer staff
- How to define the selection criteria for redundancies
- How, what and when to communicate with your staff about the changes
- Managing the consultation process
- How to avoid costly disputes and structure redundancy packages including confidentiality and non-compete agreements
- Alternatives to redundancy, such as reducing hours, and when and if these options are fair to staff or right for your business.
Delegates are encouraged to ask the speakers questions after the presentation.
This event will be beneficial to business owners and directors, and those who are responsible for employing staff.
