Redundancy and restructuring

Restructuring and making redundancies can be an extremely stressful time for any business. Lance Mason Solicitors can give you expert legal advice and guide your company through the transition with ease. Call one of our solicitors today for more information.

What is redundancy?

Redundancy can be loosely defined as the dismissal of an employee for one of the following reasons:

  • The company itself is closing down and therefore the employee is no longer needed
  • The role itself has become redundant and therefore does not need fulfilling by an employee
  • The location of the business changes/ new offices are opened and the post is now duplicated or no longer necessary

Businesses may choose to make redundancies when restructuring is taking place. Employers must ensure that redundancies are in compliance with employment law or they could become liable to unfair dismissal lawsuits. Employers must ensure:

  • That the reasons for the redundancies are genuine
  • That employees receive adequate notice for the intended redundancies
  • That the selection processes used were reasonable
