There are times when a company must make redundancies, for example as a result of financial difficulties, or where there is a lack of work in a particular area of the companies business. It is important to seek legal advice on how to handle this legal process and ensure that all legal obligations are carried out by you.
Redundancy is a potentially fair reason for dismissing an employee, however, it is an area of law that is high risk for employers, should the process be carried out incorrectly.
