Redundancy & Business Transformation
Recognised by Legal 500 as a top tier employment law team, we act for high-profile corporate clients and charities and have developed an excellent reputation for both private and public sector work. We work closely with HR departments or in a more direct advisory capacity for our clients with fewer HR resources and offer support and training on all aspects of employment law and HR issues.
Our aim is to make life easier for our clients, helping them to identify and navigate potential problems and pitfalls and providing valuable input into their employment strategy. We know that often our clients’ greatest asset is their staff. Our nationally recognised and highly regarded employment team is ideally placed to help clients manage day-to-day issues, keep abreast of developments, and provide insight into case law developments and future trends.
We recognise that one of the key aims for any organisation when considering making changes, is how to make sure the process works successfully for everyone involved. We help guide you through the legal requirements associated with a redundancy exercise, outsourcing services, buying or selling a business or taking over a grant, lease or license. We can work alongside your HR team or with you directly to provide valuable support and guidance to effect the desired changes in the smoothest way possible.
We have extensive experience dealing with redundancy planning and collective consultation. Our team can guide you through the redundancy process, helping you to ensure you meet your legal obligations, managing timeframes and costs, assisting you with communications to staff and ensuring that the risks and liabilities of such an exercise are minimised.
We also advise on the intricacies of TUPE, providing guide and support on all aspects of your legal obligations including information and consultation obligations, staff communications, electing employee representatives, dealing with Trade Unions and making changes post-transfer. Managing this process well is more likely to result in a positive outcome for all involved.
