With ongoing redundancies becoming an unfortunate reality for many businesses as the furlough scheme winds down, the need for specialist redundancy services is rising.

Right now, many large organisations are time-poor, with overstretched internal teams who are bogged down in employee relations issues or not fully confident in managing the process compliantly. If this sounds familiar, enlisting the support of an external professional can make all the difference, reducing the risk of Employment Tribunal claims and freeing up time to focus on strategic projects which may be critical to securing your future.

Previously exclusive to our Employment Law and HR service clients, we are now opening up our HR Consultancy service to employers who don’t subscribe to our fixed-fee support, recognising the urgent need for extra, expert help around redundancy right now.

Our bespoke HR Consultancy Service can be tailored to the needs of your business – ranging from a review of your business case and execution plan for due diligence to full end-to-end project management.

Our experienced HR Consultants can:

  • Work with you to build an appropriate business case and communications plan, testing rationales to ensure full compliance and avoid potential claims for unfair dismissal or discrimination;
  • Help you to create a fair and legally-compliant process to be followed in line with any existing policies and best practice guidelines, plus produce a project plan to ensure agreed timescales are met;
  • Provide full project management of the redundancy/restructure/consultation process and support you throughout each stage; and
  • Attend the announcement/at-risk meeting and consultation meetings to provide process support and respond to employees’ queries.

As a particularly complex area of employment law, our one-on-one redundancy support can protect against financial and reputational risk, relieve pressure on management time, and enable you and your team to focus on your strategic vision with complete peace of mind.
