As lockdown in the UK continues and only a slow easing of restrictions is in prospect, thousands of businesses are facing difficult choices.
Many employers are taking full advantage of Government support of every kind, from VAT deferral to furloughing staff by way of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS). However, these measures are temporary and, in the case of the CJRS, employers may need to start to prepare sooner rather than later if redundancies are likely to follow.
To help your business navigate the redundancy procedure, our Employment team has produced a guide. It outlines a step-by-step approach to the process and also gives information on the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, which employers must consider where 20 or more employees are affected under the collective redundancy consultation rules.
