Business restructure & redundancies fair procedure and policy



At some point within your business, you may need to reduce your workforce, for example, as a result of a sale of part of your business, the purchase of new equipment that then reduces the need for staff or due to a company restructure.

We recommend as part of best practice, to have a redundancy policy in place outlining the various steps that will be taken. This will help employees understand the process and what to expect during what already is, a difficult time for them.

Restructuring & Redundancies – What To Consider

Part of the procedure is to look at the required timescale you have to make someone redundant as this varies depending on how many people are affected. In addition, whether there is a need for representation and whether consultations should be collective or individual.

Do you need a selection criterion to ensure the process is carried out fairly? Will you need to appoint representatives? Who is eligible for paid time off to look for alternative work? And how much redundancy pay are people due?
