Redundancy

If you're being made redundant, Tees can guide you through the process - from disputing your selection, to getting the right exit package.

Getting the best result for you

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.

Redundancy comes as a shock to most people. It can happen to anyone, and we're here to help you find a practical way forward. Even when you’ve had an inkling that it might be coming, when you’re told that you’ve been selected for redundancy, you’ll probably feel worried about the future. Our expert employment solicitors will guide you through the redundancy process. We'll explain everything, and your rights, so you're in control of the process. Our priority is to make sure you're treated fairly, and receive the best possible settlement.

How we can help you

Our employment team are experts in the law on redundancy. We can advise and support you wherever you are in the redundancy process. We can help you with:

  • Putting forward other suggestions as part of your redundancy consultation 
  • Looking at suitable alternative employment 
  • Disputing your redundancy 
  • Conducting legal proceedings for unfair dismissal 
  • Investigating compensation and entitlements 
  • Negotiating exit packages/compromise agreements

In some company reorganisations, you might hear people talking about TUPE, especially if part of the business is being sold or outsourced to another company. If that’s the case for you, talk to us because although it’s complicated, we can help with TUPE situations as well!

A tailored service

When you come to us for help managing your redundancy, you’ll be at the centre of everything we do. We’ll listen to you and get a thorough understanding of what’s happening to you. Then we’ll use our experience and knowledge of the law to explain what your options are. We’ll work with you to try to give you some control over your situation and help you to manage it.

Straightforward and practical support

We only talk in plain language and we’ll answer any questions that you’ve got. You’ll find our team friendly and easy to talk to. If you want us to, we’ll talk to your employer for you and we can give you practical advice about how you should approach meetings with your employer. We’ll work quickly to make sure that we meet deadlines in the redundancy process and our aim will always be to get the best outcome for you. We’re always happy to see you in person, but we’ll keep in touch by phone, email and letter – whatever works for you, so you only need to come to our office if you want to.

Let’s talk!

If you’ve been selected for redundancy, it’s important to get advice quickly because there are strict legal deadlines which must be kept. So although it can be stressful, it’s not something you can afford to put off. Give us a call for a confidential discussion and let’s talk about how we can support you through this worrying time.
