Provide Support While You Manage a Redundancy Situation

Involving a professional adivsors in your tough decision making processes makes sound business sense!

The Coronavirus Pandemic is putting a huge strain on every business in the UK. The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme provided financial support from 1 March and on 12 May 2020 the Government extended the CJRS to 31 October 2020, although it will operate on a reduced basis from 1 August 2020. Despite this extension you may still find yourself in the situation where you don’t have as much work as did before and will be considering cost saving measures including reducing the number of employees in your business.

From 1 August employers will be required to pay towards the cost of the wages paid to furloughed employees for instance from 1 August you will have to pay the employee’s National Insurance and Pension Contributions for your furloughed employees and from 1 September when you pay the furloughed employee 80% of their normal wages the Government will reimburse you 70% and from 1 October their contribution will reduce to 60%. If your business is still dormant or you’re in one of the sectors that might not bee 100% back up and running by then you may find you can not afford those payments and will therefore be forced to make some or all of your employees redundant. Whilst no-one wants to find themselves in this situation it is important to act sooner rather than later in order to secure the future of your business.

Redundancy must be handled in the most fair, consistent and sympathetic manner possible.

So you can be confident the documents you are relying on are legally compliant and absolutely certain that there are no inadvertent discriminatory or any other breaches that can come back and cause major and costly problems at a later stage.

What You Will Receive with this Fixed Price HR Project

This Fixed Price HR Project is suitable for employers needing to make 19 or less employees redundant within a rolling 90 day period

With this Fixed Price HR Project I will guide you step by step through your redundancy situation.

Initially I will attend your business premises, or we can meet off site if confidentiality is an issue, to find out where you are now and where you want to be, from there I will provide step by step technical advice to guide you, clearly and concisely through the process from making the initial announcement, through consultation arrangements and choosing who will be made redundant and ensuring you apply the correct notice periods and pay the correct redundancy payments.

I will ask you to provide information about your employees: length of service, age and rates of pay (you don’t need to provide the names at this stage). From this I will prepare redundancy calculations and confirm the notice period for each employee.

After the meeting I will prepare and process plan with timings based on your circumstances. The process plan will detail exactly what you need to do and when you need to do it. To help you navigate through the process plan I will provide a copy of my comprehensive Managers Guidance Notes To Redundancy, see below for details of the topics the Guidance Notes cover.

As you reach each step in the process plan I will provide bespoke letters, if you provide me with an electronic copy of your company letterhead I will prepare the letters on that so all you have to do is print them off.

I will be available, at no extra charge, to provide you with a quick check on the interpretation or application of the content of your process plan, the managers guidance notes and the content of the supporting documentation that I provide. I will also be available to attend meetings with your employees to answer difficult questions they might ask and to take comprehensive minutes.

Unlimited advice tailored to your specific situation will ensure you act fairly and reasonably.

What I Need From You To Get Started

I need you to provide a copy of your contract of employment and employee handbook so I can ensure I comply with any redundancy related policies you have in place.

I will ask you to provide information about your employees: length of service, age and rates of pay (you don’t need to provide the names at this stage). From this I will prepare redundancy calculations and confirm the notice period for each employee.

What My Customers Say

This is the fourth time we have sought advice from Kathryn. She always provides very good, sound and practical advice.
I highly recommended her.
We asked Kathryn to provide advice to one of our clients who due to ill health had decided to close their business. She gave excellent advice and kept us informed of progress as well. We will recommend her to more clients. We recently introduced new ways of working which meant we didn’t need as many employees. Kathryn did an excellent job and was very patient with us while we made our decisions. We will definitely work with her again.
