Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
There is nothing in law which states an employer must offer VRs before considering compulsory redundancies. This is an option open to the employer but it is entirely discretionary. Some employers choose to use it if they know there are staff who are interested and who they won’t mind losing, but others opt against it as those who may put themselves forward either have the experience the employer wants to retain, they may cost to much to make redundant if they all left or simply they want to have a level playing field and go down the traditional selection route. Whatever the reasons it is for the employer to choose which option to apply.
In terms of ECHR this has nothing to do with it unfortunately, this is not a human rights issue so there won’t have been any case on on this point as it would be a flawed challenge to argue it as a human rights matter.
