Wrigleys employment and HR team comprises experts in the management of redundancy and restructuring.

 

Our advice includes guidance through issues such as:

  • Voluntary redundancies
  • The consideration of alternatives to redundancy
  • Fair selection criteria
  • The choice of the selection pool (from whom employees are to be made redundant)
  • The fair application of selection criteria
  • Information and consultation

Collective redundancies

If 20 or more redundancies are proposed, the duty to inform and consult appropriate employee representatives arises. This will be an obligation in favour of trade unions if a union is recognised, but if not, the employer has a duty to invite the election of employee representatives.

Wrigleys has extensive experience of assisting in employee elections.

Our HR service can also supply support for training of employee representatives.
