The current economic climate is affecting businesses of every shape and size and – based on recent UK Government statistics – unemployment and redundancy are becoming something of a way of life.
As an employer you have various legal obligations to your employee if their position becomes redundant. It is imperative that you follow procedure to ensure that the process is fair, consistent and sympathetic.
From the perspective of employees, the threat of redundancy can make for a worrying and uncertain time. Every employee – whether you are facing possible redundancy or not – should be aware of their employment rights and how these affect you should you find yourself out of work unexpectedly or otherwise.
