There are five fair reasons to dismiss an employee, one of which is redundancy. However, it is also one of the most difficult reasons to dismiss as you need to follow specific procedures and, any failure to do so, could result in a genuine redundancy situation being found to be an Unfair Dismissal.
This is where HR-Onsite can be invaluable. We will discuss with you the reasons for making redundancies, which employees should be in-scope, which employees may have additional protections, which employees could be selected over others to avoid Employment Tribunal action being brought against you.
We will meet with all the parties on an impartial basis to hold the redundancy consultation meetings following which we will provide you with a detailed report stating the facts, the oral and documentary evidence provided to us, our findings based upon the evidence, legislation, guidance, and caselaw, and we will provide you with proposals for fairly selecting staff for redundancy.
You are then free to decide the outcome and can avoid any allegations of bias or favouritism and we will provide you with all relevant letters to issue to staff.
Let HR-Onsite remove the stress and anxiety, on all parties, by conducting the meeting and make proposals for an impartial, fair, and transparent outcome to the issue.
We will deal with all meetings and difficult situations in a non-confrontational manner and will support, guide, and assist you in reaching a fair and transparent outcome to the issues facing your business.
Not only will this show to the employees that you take such matters seriously by dealing with it correctly, professionally, impartially and in accordance with your policies and procedures, but it highlights to all staff that you are a caring employer who takes such matters seriously.
