Webinar – Redundancy – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

We invite you to join our HR Zoom webinar.  

When: Dec 10, 2020 10:00 – 11:00 AM London  

Proudly hosted by Nicholsons Accountants, this webinar is presented by Laura Reilly – Head of HR and Compliance at Nicholsons Accountants and Dr John McMullen of Spencer West. We will take you through the basics of a fair redundancy procedure, and discuss some of the common pitfalls particularly around selection criteria.

The Good – what a ‘fair’ process looks like, what a tribunal expect from employers as a minimum, minimum timescales to conduct a fair process.

The Bad – consultation which is rushed, doesn’t have the right selection criteria in place or the right people involved in scoring.

The Ugly – when employers use redundancy to disguise another reason for dismissal, and when redundancies are used to get rid of a specific person rather than a position no longer required.

Dr John McMullen is a published author and legal specialist on redundancies. He is an Independent Law Professional, Consultant, Trainer and Writer. He has 25 year’s experience in employment law and lectures widely on a variety of employment law topics, in addition to being the author of a number of articles and books. John is also a member of the Council of ACAS. So he is well placed to answer your questions afterwards in a Q&A session. Did you know that the average award for a successful unfair dismissal claim was £13,704 in the year 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019 which highlights the need for employers to correctly follow the process.
