For employers redundancy advice will be required to react to different situations. Currently due to the circumstances created by the Coronavirus epidemic many employers are considering laying off staff. With grants available to employers under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme furloughing employees has been given preference over making redundancies, however, these grants are only temporary, once ended redundancy is likely to be back on the agenda.

When considering making staff redundant initial consideration will focus on the following three questions firstly, whether the situation presents a large scale redundancy exercise involving 20 or more employees, secondly, does it involve single self-selecting position(s) or, thirdly does the proposed reduction involve a team undertaking the same type of work (pool). The redundancy process will be driven by the answers to these three questions. Regardless, where 20 or more employees at one establishment are proposed to be made redundant in a 90 day period the Company to avoid prosecution must complete form HR1, see link

When making an employee redundant receiving redundancy legal advice is essential. Redundancy case law is now well established and employment tribunals expect to see that employers have carried out a robust exercise. Therefore, balancing redundancy law and the needs of the business, is essential when considering making employees redundant.
