Provide outplacement/counselling services for redundant employees

Key points

  • Many employers support employees who have been dismissed for redundancy by providing outplacement and/or counselling services.
  • The appropriate amount and type of support will depend on the employee's circumstances, including his or her seniority, skills, experience and response to the redundancy process.
  • The employer can choose to provide services in-house and/or contract out the support.
