When contemplating restructuring and
redundancies Employers need to be very aware that they
are dismissing Employees and accordingly the situation
must be approached with care and concern. It is very
common for Employees who are made redundant to bring
a personal grievance claim, justified or not this will
increase costs to an Employer at a time when they can
least afford it.
By seeking advice and devising and
implementing an appropriate process the Employer can
reduce the financial risks and can focus redundant Employees
on the positive aspects of the future to the benefit
of all parties.
Advising Employers through restructuring
and assisting with an effective communications plan
to limit the risks of personal grievances is a key strength
of ours. Penny is available to provide background advice
only or to manage the whole process if appropriate.
