Redundancies & Restructuring
Our employment and HR team have a vast array of experience in assisting our clients on reorganisations and restructures within their businesses.
Reorganisations and restructures can often be complex and take many different shapes and forms, from a workplace closure, to a reduction in headcount or change of job roles, whether due to a downturn in work or following a business acquisition or a change in the way processes are undertaken. Reorganisations can be required when employees have transferred across under TUPE following a service provision change and don’t always result in a loss of headcount.
How can we help?
We can provide advice and assistance in identifying the correct procedure which needs to be followed and the best approach to take. At this stage out advice and assistance can be in the background for those clients who wish to run the process themselves but would like re-assurance that they are following the correct procedure. Alternatively, we can have a hands on approach by being on site to provide external HR support or even to run the process for you.
