Managing redundancy - Classroom

This interactive in-house seminar is designed to help you understand all of the right steps you need to take before terminating an employment contract for reason of redundancy – as failure to follow the correct procedures can lead to unnecessary litigation and prove to be a costly error.

Are you looking to cut costs by reducing your workforce, including making staff redundant? Have you already made cuts, but are wondering about your legal responsibilities as an employer? Have you followed, or are you planning to follow, the correct redundancy process? Or are you concerned that you may be at risk of receiving an Employment Tribunal claim?

International Workplace’s Managing Redundancy Seminar answers all of these questions and more. The guidance offered at this seminar will save you time and money by avoiding the expense and preparation involved with Employment Tribunals.
