Unfortunately, in all times of economic uncertainty, redundancies and restructures and restrictions have become a common occurrence. But how can an employer fairly and legally make someone redundant, and what should they take into account when they follow the redundancy process remotely? And what are the risks if they do it wrong?
In this webinar, Alicia Collinson (solicitor) from Leeds-based Thrive Law will talk about how to conduct a fair redundancy process, considering the difficulties in doing so remotely.
Thrive Law have won two prestigious awards in 2019 for social mobility and diversity and inclusion. They were also featured by the SRA in their disability leadership campaign and by the law society in their managing mental health in the workplace guidance for their culture. Thrive are now an EDI mentor for the SRA with smaller firms.
