Consult individually with a provisionally redundant employee

Key points

  • Employers should consult individually with all employees who are provisionally selected for redundancy, whether or not they are required to consult collectively.
  • The employer should engage meaningfully with the employee. This includes giving the employee the opportunity to express his or her views and discussing any alternatives to redundancy.
  • The employer should not issue notices of dismissal before concluding individual consultation with employees.
