As businesses and economic circumstances change and evolve, it is common for Employers to find themselves in a position where they feel that they need to make redundancies. This may be particularly relevant over the coming months with the Government’s furlough scheme due to begin winding down from 1st July 2021. In this month’s article, we therefore look at the key features and considerations in a fair redundancy process which often form the basis for unfair dismissal claims.   Please note that this article will focus on individual redundancy processes, where 20 or more redundancies are envisaged within a 90-day period, collective consultation obligations will arise.
