With 600,000 fewer workers already on UK payrolls in the period between March and May 2020, redundancy exercises are here to stay for the foreseeable future. This webinar provides a clear and comprehensive overview of the law relating to redundancies, both individual and collective, with particular focus on the challenges thrown up by the pandemic in managing redundancy exercises.
- What is redundancy?
- Selection criteria – how do you choose who to make redundant?
- Collective consultation obligations – when do these apply and what do you have to do?
- Offering suitable alternative employment – why and how should this happen?
- Entitlement to redundancy payments
- Changing terms and conditions – tips and tricks
The aim of the talk is to give delegates:
- A greater awareness of the law relating to individual and collective redundancies
- Practical guidance on how to run redundancy exercises in the Covid climate
- An insight into the interplay between redundancy and discrimination law
