Making staff redundant is often one of the most gut wrenching steps a business owner has to take.
Nockolds' specialist Employment Team brings decades of experience dealing with these situations to try and make them as pain free as we can and ensure that processes are followed correctly and fairly to achieve the desired outcome.
Redundancy arises in one of three circumstances;
- The business closes down
- The place of work closes down
- The business requires fewer employees to do work of a particular kind
Once the redundancy situation arises it is important that you plan the changes that you require and then enter the consultation period fully prepared and with various options and answers to the inevitable challenges which will arise as staff fight to retain their jobs.
