On appeal: Selective redundancies

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Continuing our series on the implications of recent significant cases, Anthony Korn, a barrister at 199 Strand Chambers, looks at the issues.

Key points

  • In redundancy selection cases, staff should be consulted on their redundancy assessment before they are selected for redundancy and should be provided with the evidence on which those assessments are based
  • There should normally be a direct meeting between the person who carried out the assessment and the person assessed in much the same way as there would be in any appraisal process
  • Where this does not take place as part of the original selection process, it should take place at the appeal hearing.
