Redundancy Starter Checklist for Employers

The cost of living crisis has left many UK employers forced to consider making redundancies to ensure their businesses are in the strongest position to survive and continue to thrive.

While redundancy is never a pleasant topic, it’s one that requires careful consideration and expert guidance. HS Direct HR and Employment Law experts have put together a free redundancy checklist for employers.

Our free Redundancy Guide contains 5 key steps you’ll need to consider before embarking upon a redundancy process:

  • Making a clear business case for why you need to make redundancies
  • Considering how many roles will be affected
  • Creating a plan for consulting with your employees affected
  • If you are losing only some roles from a larger group carrying out the same or very similar roles, creating a fair and reasonable plan for selecting who to choose
  • Making employees aware of any alternative vacancies
