Event Summary

In these challenging economic times, many employers are facing difficult choices. Invariably, the largest single cost to an organisation is its payroll. Employers across all sectors continue to experience intense pressure to revise organisational structures and achieve costs savings through redundancy exercises. This half-day masterclass is designed to provide delegates with a clear understanding of the law relating to redundancy and a clear sense as to how the law translates into day-to-day practice.

This Masterclass will cover:

  • Defining and identifying a redundancy situation
  • The perfect redundancy process:

- The preliminary steps
- Planning and implementing consultation
- Pooling
- Selection criteria
- Suitable alternative employment

  • Understanding and addressing potentially thorny issues:

- Establishing non-discriminatory selection criteria
- Employees on maternity and paternity leave
- Trial periods
- Bumping
- Voluntary redundancies (retaining talent and preserving morale)
- Appeals

  • Large scale redundancies and collective consultation
  • Minimising cost and exposure
