Advice from Lawgistics: making redundancies during the pandemic

Date: Thursday 29 October 2020

A recent ACAS survey commissioned by YouGov has reported that 1 in 3 employers are likely to make redundancies over the next 3 months.

Of the key points:

It is no surprise that businesses are continuing to be affected by the coronavirus crisis, and unfortunately, many are having to consider the possibility of making redundancies.

If a redundancy situation is inevitable, it is important that a fair procedure is followed, and the correct payment issued. Failure to do so could result in a costly legal process for employers.

Lawgistics members can benefit from their redundancy package which sets out all the necessary steps to be taken to ensure a fair process is followed.

If you are a Lawgistics member and have any questions or require any assistance throughout the redundancy process, please contact them on 01480 455500 to discuss.

If you are not a Lawgistics member but wish to sign up and receive support on this process, you will also have access to: their legal helpline, casework support on employment, consumer law and other motor trade related legal issues. IAAF members have acess to the award winning Lawgistics HR Manager lite software.
