Sometimes employers use redundancy to mask a different reason for dismissal. If you feel that this is the case, then speak to us as we can explore whether or not there are other reasons for your dismissal which might make it unfair or unlawful.
Even where the redundancy appears genuine, employers do not always follow the correct procedure and consultation is often too brief or completed as a tick box exercise without any meaningful engagement.
If you are faced with redundancy, you may wish to explore the benefits of a negotiated settlement at an early stage. Additional befits to seeking a negotiated settlement could be an enhanced redundancy payment, an agreed reference, outplacement counselling and retention of company property such as laptops, phones, etc.
