Redundancy Handling and Support

Having to make a redundancy is difficult for everyone involved. At Parallel HR, we realise that this is the last thing you want to do. We will help you get things right so that you, and those affected, can move forward.

Redundancy Handling and Support

A sensitive and fair redundancy process

As we have seen over recent years, change happens in business.  Sometimes you have no option but to consider making redundancies.

One of the things we love about working with small businesses is how well they know the individuals in their team.  But when it comes to making a redundancy, it can make a difficult decision even harder.   It is essential that, whatever your circumstances, you follow a fair redundancy procedure. This will help you to:

  • Make sure you consider every option to avoid redundancy
  • Support those affected to process the decision
  • Show everyone that you act fairly and
  • Keep you away from an employment tribunal.

We will take you through every stage, step by step. From identifying and managing a pool of candidates right through to making those difficult decisions, we will be there to guide and support you.  All the time we will focus on making sure you act legally, fairly and sensitively.

We will make sure you follow the correct consultation procedures and provide the right documentation for you at every stage. We will also help you support those selected to move on in a positive way.
