Redundancies including Collective Consultation

Redundancies have become part of everyday business life in recent years, and particularly in response to the impact of Covid-19. If you need practical and pragmatic assistance in managing individual redundancy consultation, then we can help you. Whether providing guidance and support for managers, preparing letters or drafting workforce communications, we have the experience you are looking for.

If your plans require 20 or more redundancies over a period of 90 days or less, you have a statutory duty to undertake collective consultation in good time. We can project manage this process for you.

The collective consultation process can seem a daunting task, particularly if you do not have a Trade Union or an existing employee forum. We can manage the process of electing employee representatives and forming a consultation body, expertly supporting the process from start to finish.

We also have extensive experience in managing large scale voluntary redundancy programmes as well as working with organisations to implement creative and cost effective alternatives to redundancy that fit business need, whether as short term or longer term measures. 

Wiles HR Solutions can help you through the redundancy process from beginning to end, ensuring that your business fulfils all its legal obligations and completes the procedure with as little disruption to normal business activities as possible; whether we are managing the process for you or providing project support for your HR team. We are experienced in advising on these issues at Board level.

We can manage redundancy programmes to achieve your preferred outcomes,yet build confidence and trust from employees in the process at the same time.  

Our added value service extends to the provision of help for those who are made redundant, either in one to one counselling or assistance with CV development and job search (often referred to as Outplacement). 

Where you have sufficient numbers of employees being made redundant, we can run group workshops looking at these issues, which can further enhance your reputation with employees; these can be carried out online as a webinar.
