At Ison Harrison Solicitors, we understand that being made redundant or being aware of possible redundancies is an extremely stressful time, this can be exacerbated further if the news was unexpected and has taken you by surprise.
When a redundancy situation arises, your employer is obliged to conduct the redundancy dismissals fairly. While there is no mandatory procedure laid down by law in England and Wales but an employer must ensure that they follow a fair procedure which involved individual consultation.
There is a vast amount of common law in England and Wales that an Employment Tribunal can consider when making a decision on a matter brought before them. The common law sets out principles relating to fairness and we will ensure that the appropriate cases are brought to the Tribunal's attention should your case be heard at a Tribunal.
Our team of specialist employment solicitors can help advise you as to your rights in relation to the redundancy process and can help to ensure that at the end of the process you are provided with the best possible outcome.
What we will consider when reviewing your redundancy
- Your employment rights
- Whether your employer has followed the correct procedures
- Whether there has been sufficient consultation
- Whether the redundancy selection has been fair
- Whether you have or should have been offered an alternative position by your employer
- Whether the amount of any termination payment offered is fair and reasonable in all the circumstances
