Redundancies – how to apply best practice

With Jon Heuvel, Partner – Employment

Sadly, few businesses will have escaped the impact of coronavirus on their bottom line, and the consequential need to look at ways to cut costs and overheads going forward. With the wind-down of furlough expected this October, many businesses will be faced with the prospect of reducing headcount and making redundancies.

In this webinar, we will focus on some of the common issues that arise in the context of planning and executing redundancies, how to apply best practice and dispel some of the surrounding myths.

Ways to avoid collective redundancy
How and when to pool employees (and when not to)
Bumping – can employees insist on it being used?
Effective use of voluntary redundancy/enhanced payments
The pregnant employee and other special cases

This is a live event and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers on the day.  If you wish to put your questions forward in advance, please email these to events@shma.co.uk
