When employers wish to make employees redundant they must follow a clear and fair process. The Labour Relations Agency has a redundancy flowchart and sample letters which can help employers and employees in this situation.
This leaflet is aimed at employers where fewer than 20 staff are at risk of redundancy.
In light of recent decisions the Agency is currently reviewing this Advisory Guide - Advice on handling redundancy.
This seminar is aimed at employers and employees and their representatives who have to face or deal with a potential redundancy situation. The seminar will address such issues as the legal definition of redundancy, redundancy consultation, redundancy policies and procedures and the calculation of redundancy payments.
The seminar will last for 2.5 hours.
