Redundancy can be one of the most distressing events you may experience. It should be seen by employers as the last resort. In most circumstances, redundancy usually happens when there is no longer a need for someone to do your work. Changes could be happening at work, or the Business is closing.
Redundancy requires sensitive handling by the employer to ensure fair treatment. Whether you are directly affected or not, it can be a very stressful time especially if you have had the same job for a while or wanted to stay with the Company.
If you think you were selected unfairly or there was a problem in the redundancy process, our redundancy solicitors can advise you on whether your employer is following the right process.
Your employer may offer you the chance to appeal. Our expert solicitors for redundancy can help you appeal the decision, assist with writing to your employer with the reasons you think the redundancy was unfair and we can guide you through the process of the appeal meeting.
If 20 or more employees at one establishment are to be made redundant, your employer should collectively consult either with a recognised trade union or elected representatives. If your employer fails to collectively consult, Morr & Co can help you to peruse what is known as a “protective award”.
The law requires “meaningful” consultation, it is not enough only to inform you of a decision that has already been made. In some circumstances, you may feel that your employer did not hold a genuine and meaningful consultation before making redundancies and you could make a claim to the employment tribunal for unfair dismissal. Our team of redundancy solicitors can help you every step of the way.
