Early advice from one of our Employment lawyers could mean that redundancy can be avoided, that its effects can be minimised and that appropriate compensation is paid.
The law surrounding redundancy and redundancy payments is complex and in some circumstances (and with the correct strategic advice) can give rise to high value compensation or claims.
In addition, where 20 or more redundancies are made, employers have further obligations in relation to the information they must provide and the consultation they must carry out. Failure to do so can result in significant additional compensation for affected employees.
Our Employment lawyers have particular expertise in advising and representing groups of employees where employers (including insolvent employers) fail to take these additional steps.
