ACAS have quite rightly addressed in their recent message to employers that “whilst times are tough”, “employers should exhaust all possible alternative before making redundancies”.
With business needs having to change dramatically to keep its staff and users safe, most employers are working hard to ensure minimum impact of redundancies by offering reduced hours, alternative roles, job share and more.
Whilst ACAS have called on employers to work with their employees and trade unions to get the process of redundancy correct by following 5 principles as laid out on their website, we call on employees to ensure they seek legal advice on their employment rights – we have often seen some redundancies disguised as such when in fact, there was no genuine call for a redundancy.
If you are an individual and you are unsure about how you are affected or what your rights may be or you are an employer and you are concerned as to how your business will be affected then do contact our specialist team at Summerfield Browne Solicitors on 0800 567 7595 or email [email protected]
