We are living in unprecedented times. With the economy and business effectively on hold since mid- March, businesses of all sizes and in all industries are having to make tough decisions to try to keep the business moving and as many people employed as possible.
When the UK Governments Furlough scheme is wound down at the end of October, thousands of business across the UK will be looking at how they need to restructure in order to be successful in the new world of work. Unfortunately, employee redundancies will be something many businesses may have to consider.
The redundancy process is difficult for both employers and employees so doing it the ‘right way’ is critical. Businesses that make redundancies must follow UK employment legislation to ensure your employment responsibilities are met. Redundancy legislation is complex, and the process depends on several factors, including how many people you are making redundant and the roles they do.
For example, one of the key factors in what process you must follow is based on the number of employees you are making redundant over a 90-day period. More than 20 employees in any 90-day period adds another element of complexity compared to if you are just making one employee redundant.
To help businesses that are making less than 20 redundancies over a 90 day period, we have designed a complete Redundancy package that will help you follow UK employment legislation and ensure you follow the correct processes. This package contains process guidance notes and a complete set of letter templates that will allow you to navigate and manage the difficult process of employee redundancies.
