Are you at risk of redundancy has your Employer followed the Law?
Your employer’s requirements may be evolving and changing all the time. If your employed decides to relocate, undertake an internal reorganisation to improve efficiency, or may invest in technology which results in changes to your job function. Economic pressures may mean that your employer is struggling and needs to reduce its employee numbers or else close part/all of the business. Redundancy is where the job that you do is no longer required as a result of these changes to the business.
If you find yourself at risk of redundancy as a result of a similar scenario, our specialist employment law solicitors can help. We can advise you and your colleagues in connection with the redundancy consultation process to include identifying alternatives to avoid your redundancy and making representations in connection with any proposal or scoring exercise to ensure fairness. We can help you make an informed decision in connection with any offer of voluntary redundancy or a settlement agreement. You should contact us for advice at the outset of any process.
If you find yourself in a position where your job is changing because of proposed changes within the business, this may amount to a change to your terms and conditions of employment. It is imperative to seek advice at an early stage because how you react to those changes may determine whether or not you are deemed to have accepted them.
