Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
What do you specifically want to know about this, please?
Thank you. Regardless of the outcome and whether it is obvious or not, you still need to go through a consultation period with the employee to endure the redundancy procedure is fair. And just to point out, you do not need to consult for 30 days – that is only for redundancies of 20+ employees. Yours can be wrapped up within a week or less, where you hold one or two meaningful consultation meetings with him to discuss the reasons for redundancy, offer hi the chance to propose ways to avoid it, discuss any suitable alternative positions that may exist and eventually, confirm the redundancy.
