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

Learning Objectives

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
