Making Redundancies: Get help. Do it right.
Call Mint HR on 07957 285 995
Unfortunately, not all businesses grow all the time and with the economic impact of Covid-19 things are harder then ever. Be it market conditions, financial pressures, or whether you've just changed the focus of what you're doing, letting people go can be one of the most painful things a business has to do.
Bring Mint HR on board and we will help you plan and deliver redundancy in full consultation with the people affected, and in keeping with the fairness demanded by law - and the ACAS code of practice.
What the redundancy process looks like
"We could not keep up with HR legislation and needed to know the company were making the right decisions regarding staff issues. Mint HR is a very professional and slick company... with fast and reliable answers."
To give you some idea of the process you need to follow, the steps look a little like this. We will be there at every step of the way and will handle all the difficult conversations if you need us to. Remember: if redundancy is mishandled, it can lead to costly tribunal proceedings, so it's important you dot every 'i' and cross every 't'.
- Identifying potential roles at threat of redundancy.
- Informing employees ahead of time if redundancies are a possibility.
- Selection criteria: develop a list of criteria to help you decide which individuals may be made redundant within the roles identified.
- Consultations: talking to groups and individuals who might be affected
- Informing the selected parties
We can help with any or all of these stages, chair meetings, provide a script to follow, handle queries, send out the necessary paperwork, and handle process in line with all legal requirements and ACAS code of practice.
If you want to explore alternatives to redundancy, we can advise on other measures - such as:
- Recruitment freeze
- Retraining and redeployment
- Reducing or eliminating overtime
- Reducing hours or temporary lay-offs
- Accepting voluntary redundancy
None of this is pleasant or easy for managers to deal with - especially in a small business with personal relationships, so pick up the phone to Tracy on 07957 285 995 now to chat through what you need. It's often the simplest way to solve a lot of problems for you and your employees alike.
Obviously, making redundancies comes with a cost. As well as paying the correct redundancy payments to the employees you're making redundant, you will need professional help.
We will not tie you into a commitment or monthly retainer.
We will give you an estimate of what it will cost, depending on the number of employees you need to make redundant, but our rate card is as follows. If the process is handled faster than we expect, any time you have left over is yours to use for any HR support you need in the future.
