Considerations when reducing workforce to cut costs

Following the collapse of Carillion and other notorious businesses in the last year, we created a series of articles to provide you with guidance on how best to proceed and how staff reductions hopefully can be avoided.

Our first article looked at the indirect consequences of the fallout from the Carillion liquidation that were most likely to impact your business and your employees.

Following this we provided you with a list of options for you to consider before concluding that redundancies are necessary.

We then outlined the process and rules that must be followed when making redundancies, to ensure that they are not unfair and don’t lead you to tribunal.

To complete this series, we provided an overview of settlement agreements and advise how they can be used to bring an employment relationship to an end in a mutually beneficial way.

We hope you find the information in the series useful, however, if you need help and advice in relation to redundancies, consultations with employees and settlement agreements, please do not hesitate to contact the employment team on 0113 350 4030 or email hello@scesolicitors.co.uk
