We understand that managing redundancies can be one of the hardest parts of running a business. You will need to ensure you follow the required legal processes correctly to reduce the risk of expensive Tribunal claims. With the reduced opportunity for alternative employment after redundancy, employees are likely to be more ready to bring claims against their employers should the redundancy process be mishandled. Our webinar can ensure you can confidently handle the process and get it right for you and your employees.
