When making employees redundant, it is essential that best practice is adopted and actions are legally compliant. This will minimise disruption to the business and help maintain moral amongst the team.
Working with Consensus HR ensures that any redundancies are carried out correctly, legally and efficiently. The dangers of not handling redundancy situations correctly include:
– loss of sales
– demotivated team members
– change in company culture to bad morale
– taken to Employment Tribunal
Companies need to follow a sensitive and fair redundancy process if your company does not want to find itself in an Employment Tribunal (ET). A fair redundancy process will help to ensure that those member of the team that remain see that you have acted reasonably, to best practice and the law throughout.
Consensus HR will take you through every step of the process and help you to identify your pool of candidates, using a suitable selection criterion relevant to your business. We will help and guide you through the process of making those difficult decisions whilst ensuring at all times you have acted legally, fairly and sensitively.
As part of the process, you will need to consult with anyone who may be affected by redundancy. Consensus HR will make sure you follow the correct consultation procedures and will provide the right letters and documentation for you at every stage. For those that are selected, we can provide support and guidance to help them seek a new career in the future. We are also able to help your business to plan its manpower going forward now that you’re with fewer team members.
