Redundancy law – guidance for employers
Redundancy is a form of dismissal that occurs when an employer needs to reduce their workforce. Redundancy can occur for a variety of reasons, such as a downturn in business, a reorganization, or the introduction of new technology.
Redundancy can be an overwhelming and unsettling prospect for both employers and employees and getting it wrong can be costly on several levels – financially, in reputational terms and potentially damaging to the remaining staff in the business.
