HR teams have been at the forefront of coping and adapting during the Covid-19 pandemic, the resulting lockdown, enforced working from home and for some, furloughing staff. Four months on and some businesses are having to look at reducing costs and staffing levels. But how easy is it make employees redundant; are there new considerations and risks that businesses need to take on board to ensure they don’t leave themselves exposed to unfair dismissal claims, or indeed group actions from unhappy employees?
Areas to be covered:
- Collective Consultation process: when does it need to start, how to elect representatives, what is the consultation process and when can you give notice?
- Redundancy selection: examples of a selection matrix and possible pitfalls – including discrimination issues and selecting people on furlough.
