Managers guide to Redundancy
Price: £30 + VAT
Businesses may feel that they want or need to streamline their staff numbers for a variety of reasons. The most common reason is a downturn in the fortunes of a business or its complete closure, but redundancies can also result from changes in working practices such as the introduction of new technology or a new shift pattern. A business is not required to demonstrate that it has financial problems in order legally to make redundancies, the law in this area permits employers to organise their staff in ways best suited to their business, subject to legal safeguards provided by the redundancy legislation.
This course provides a step by step guide, with case study examples, to the process employers should follow when contemplating redundancies.
