Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Why were you being interviewed for your job?
how long have you worked there for?
So everyone being interviewed does the same job currently?
This is appears to be a classic redundancy situation and there is nothing wrong with such an approach. If an employer wishes to reduce its headcount, it must ensure that there has been a fair selection process. A common selection method is to interview the affected employees for any available posts and keep the top performers and making redundant those that have not performed as well. To ensure there is no favouritism and everyone is treated the same, the employer has to choose a suitable selection pool and if they need to reduce staff from a particular job, it is common to place all those employees doing this job at risk and engage them in the scoring exercise before deciding who is to be made redundant. As you can imagine every one of these employees has been given the job because they were successful in one way or another, whether at interview or another method, so you cannot use this as a reason to make you unique in this position and provide you with immunity in this situation.
each situation will depend on its own circumstances, so that each employer, their structure, business needs etc will create unique circumstances about the proposals and how it is tackled. This is why there is a consultation process to start with where the employer and the employees discuss alternatives to redundancy and what can be done to try and minimise their effects or avoid them altogether. This is your opportunity to make any proposals that you believe may do this
