Redundancy can raise a range of difficulties.
- Is there a genuine redundancy situation or has the redundancy been engineered?
- If there’s a need to reduce the headcount, has the employer properly identified a pool of candidates?
- Has there been proper consultation about the redundancy or selection criteria which might be applied to those at risk?
- If more than 20 jobs are going over a 90 day period, the employer has to follow a specific process. If they do not, you could be entitled to 90 days pay.
A fair redundancy dismissal demands the careful application of law and process. Some employers are led by commercial pressure or ignorance to ignore this. We’ll help you fight your corner.
