Implementing a fair redundancy process
Are you aware of the risks?
Redundancy management is a tricky process. The decision to make redundancies has often been arrived at after much deliberation and is usually seen as a last resort. Yet, redundancies happen all the time in business. Business restructuring, cost-cutting and business closures are just some of the reasons why you may be considering a redundancy programme.
Redundancy should be handled with the utmost sensitivity and tact. The affected employee(s) will likely have financial worries and the stress of having to find a new job. Employees who have not been made redundant may lose morale as they witness their colleague(s) departure, which they may view as unfair. The manager responsible for implementing the redundancy process may also be anxious and experience negativity from the workforce.
All of this on top of ensuring correct procedure is followed and that the business remains legally compliant. If fair procedure is not followed, your business could be liable and face a hefty fine. How does an employer know where to start?
