Live Q&A on redundancies and the consultation process
Welcome to - Live Q&A on redundancies and the consultation process
"Very good, well presented and covered a lot of the areas I'm presently involved in re restructuring."
"Great - answered many of my questions and eliminated many of my concerns."
"Very good. On point, on track - it was great, it covered so much!"
The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme may have been extended to 31 October 2020, but employers should be thinking now about what their workforce might look like following the end of furlough.
- When can I make redundancies - do I have to wait to the end of furlough?
- Can we carry out individual and collective redundancy consultation during furlough?
- What issues should we be aware of when collectively or individually consulting with a workforce who are on furlough or remote working?
The impact of the COVID-19 shutdown and the phasing out of the CJRS provisions mean that many employers are facing difficult decisions - will they need to make redundancies? And what will be the impact of furlough arrangements on any redundancy process they follow?
Following the success of our recent “When lockdown is lifted ....” webinar and follow up Returning to work - Live Q&A, we've opened the floor for questions about potential redundancies. In this practical Q&A session Partner Tina Wisener and Senior Associate Rose Smith discuss business justifications for redundancies, consultation obligations, when collective consultation obligations are triggered, and obligations to notify BEIS.
