The UK economy is in recession following the COVID-19 pandemic and associated lockdown, and whilst recovery is underway, it is not happening as quickly as might be hoped. In addition, the Government’s “furlough” scheme has protected millions of jobs, but has started to wind down and will finish at the end of October. As a result of these and other factors, over the coming months, many businesses will be considering redundancies in their UK workforce. For any business considering potential staffing reductions, there are significant legal and practical issues to take into account. This webinar will give an overview of the relevant law and associated risks, with guidance on minimizing the potential legal and financial exposure, as well as providing practical advice on planning a compliant redundancy process, where redundancies do prove to be necessary.
