Redundancy legal advice

It may be the first time you’ve been made redundant and you just don’t know what to expect. Or maybe you’ve been there before and this time your employer doesn’t seem to be following the process properly? If you’ve been selected for redundancy, it’s important to get advice quickly because there are strict legal deadlines which must be kept to.
