Managing staff redundancies
Make staff redundant only as a last resort and manage the process properly, according to the law.
The decision to make staff redundant is never an easy one. Aside from the financial stress and emotional trauma for the people being laid off, it could adversely affect the morale of your workforce and your business’ ability to grow if prospects improve.
Consequently, before you start the redundancy process, it’s important to consider all the alternatives first.
If you’re unable to avoid making redundancies, it’s vital you create a redundancy plan in order to avoid any legal complications.
