Redundancy and Restructuring (Employment)

Redundancy and Restructuring

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

Any change to a business brings with it a range of employment law issues, whether this involves managing employee communications and consultations, introducing new working practices or business structures, or changing terms of employment. It may also involve redundancies, which can be complex and require careful planning. We specialise in advising employers on all aspects of restructure and redundancy, from large scale strategic reorganisations to individual redundancy dismissals, and we have significant experience in co-ordinating redundancies across jurisdictions. Achieving the strategic long and short-term aims of the business, while minimising the risk of claims, is key. If matters become contentious, we know how to resolve disputes at any stage of the process.

We are equally at home advising individual or groups of employees who bring claims around defective redundancy procedures, as well as working proactively with employee representatives to ensure their employer is following proper processes.
