Collective redundancies and individual redundancy - expert advice for employers

Tees has extensive experience guiding employers through reorganisations, restructures and redundancy exercises (including collective redundancies). Our advice is tailored to your business’ particular needs, and we focus on minimising any potential risks. So, you can be confident that your business is fully informed and protected, while taking the necessary steps.

Collective redundancy advice

If you are considering making 20 or more employees redundant, you must comply with additional consultation requirements. Our employment law solicitors can advise on every aspect of collective redundancies – from initial advice, election of representatives and notification to BIS, through to due collective consultation and redundancy dismissals.

How we work with you

If you are considering making employees redundant, our employment law team can guide you smoothly through the process. We will ensure that your business complies with all the legal requirements – such as the consultation requirements specific to redundancy dismissals. We can guide you through the process from start to finish.

Tees can advise you on any issue relating to redundancy, including:

  • When an employee can be made redundant
  • Minimising risk to your business
  • How to warn and consult staff appropriately
  • The procedures to follow
  • Collective consultation
  • BIS notification
  • Election of employee representatives
  • How to undertake a selection process
  • Preparing selection criteria which satisfy the requirement to be ‘fair and objective’
  • Your obligations to employees selected for redundancy
  • Statutory and contractual redundancy payments
  • Offering alternative jobs and trial periods
  • Defending employment tribunal claims made by employees.

Our services include practical measures such as preparing a timetable of steps, drafting letters and guides for meetings. We can be involved as much, or as little, as your business requires. Our level of involvement ranges from managing the whole process, to providing ad hoc advice to support your in-house teams.

Our costs

We deliver costs transparently, and we always discuss legal costs at the outset. We can agree our level of involvement to be commensurate with your budget, and we may be able to agree fixed fees or capped fees in certain cases.
