Specializing in Representation for Employers and Employees
If an employer needs to reduce the size of a company's workforce, an employee may be made lawfully redundant. Given the current economic state, many businesses are dismissing employees based on redundancy. For both employers and employees, understanding the legal issues involved in a claim and how it affects your situation is important. The team at Waldegraves is here to assist you by providing guidance and straightforward answers to your questions.
We offer our clients the breadth and depth of resources, knowledge and expertise necessary to provide the most effective representation. At Waldegraves, we are experienced in a vast range of employment law practice areas, some including unfair dismissal, discrimination, harassment, working time and more.
Redundancy — Employers
The thought of restructuring your business can be both daunting and exciting. Redundancy allows a business ample opportunity to restructure, as long as it is done properly. With the expertise of the specialist solicitors at Waldegraves, you can maximize the benefits of redundancy without being liable for a claim against you. We will explain the details, such as fair selection criteria and how to be reasonably objective and how to determine fair compensation with employees prior to the redundancy.
Redundancy — Employees
In order to be entitled to redundancy payment, an employee must be employed at the company for at least two years. The process for making an employee redundant is complex and procedural, and the employer must follow the process properly in order for an employee to be considered lawfully redundant.
If you have questions about the reasoning behind your dismissal, our London redundancy rights solicitors will investigate the company's actions and make certain that you are receiving the redundancy pay to which you are entitled, based on your employment contract.
