Legal Advice for Employees Dealing with Redundancy

Broadly speaking, redundancy is used to describe a situation in which an employer decides to reduce the number of its employees, either within the business as a whole, or within a particular site, business unit, function or job role.

An employer may decide to make redundancies for a variety of reasons, including:

  • economic pressures;
  • changes in the market;
  • increasing efficiency;
  • technical advances; and
  • relocation of business.

Provided there is a genuine business reason for the redundancy, employers are not generally required to justify their decision, although it is important to ensure that a fair procedure is followed so as to minimise the risk of litigation.

Our solicitors are able to provide guidance on how to manage a redundancy situation, including consideration as to whether there any alternatives available as well as understanding the legal and commercial implications of such actions.
