Redundancy Part 2: Consultation

Redundancy v2

The second instalment of a mini series focusing on Redundancy

Episode 2: Consultation

This is the second episode of a mini series on redundancy in which I will focus on all aspects of redundancy and how to ensure you get things right.

In this episode I will cover:

  • What the difference is with consultation for 20 or more employees
  • What a minimum consultation would be
  • How to deal with a Collective Consultation
  • Why consultation is vital for a fair dismissal
  • When you have to notify the Secretary of State
  • How to consult employee representatives
  • What the ‘Protective Award’ is

 Action Points

If you are considering redundancy carefully calculate the number of employees likely to be redundant as a result within the next 90 days (including those who volunteer).
