Why should employers provide assistance to employees once they have been given notice of redundancy?

The provision of assistance to redundant employees is not only of benefit to employees, but can also be advantageous to employers, as it encourages people to see their organisation in a good light, improves the morale of retained staff and reduces the likelihood of employment tribunal claims. The provision of assistance to redundant employees helps the employer complete the redundancy procedure more smoothly and with less interruption to business.
