Organisational Design & Restructuring Including Terms & Conditions & Redundancies

Thursday 9 July 2020 (12.00pm - 12.45pm) with The HR Suite

One of the unexpected consequences of Covid-19 has been a substantial change in the way many of us work and for some organisations and employees this has been a very positive experience.  In this webinar Caroline McEnery, the HR Suite will discuss how to carry out organisation redesign and restructuring to help employers cope with the impact on their business efficacy of the pandemic.  This will inevitably include some renegotiation of terms and conditions and potential redundancy.

Pitfalls of a Redundancy Process  – Fair and non-discriminatory selection during Covid 19

Wednesday 15th July (11am - 12pm) with CC Solicitors

A sad but inevitable outcome of the Covid-19 pandemic is the downturn in many industries resulting in significant cost cutting exercises.  In this webinar, Scott Alexander (Legal Island) will discuss some of the pitfalls in redundancy selection with our panel of experts from CC Solicitors (a specialist employment law practice), Colleen Cleary (Founder and principal), Claire Dawson (Partner) and Regan O’Driscoll (Partner), with particular focus on how to avoid discrimination in the selection process. 

The webinar will consider:

  • Cost reduction measures to reduce numbers of compulsory redundancies.
  • Top tips in how to implement a fair redundancy process 
  • Discrimination arising in the context of Covid-19 – gender, family, age and disability
  • Vulnerable employees 
  • Key considerations in drafting non-discriminatory selection criteria.
