Webinar: How to manage restructuring and redundancy in 2023
The current economic climate is forcing businesses to make difficult decisions as they grapple with high inflation, a deflated economy and an increasing financial burden.
Whilst some employers may need to look at redundancy programmes as a way to reduce costs, others, particularly those in sectors where talent is currently hard to find and retain, may hope to minimise or avoid compulsory redundancies by restructuring or looking for alternative cost-saving measures.
In this webinar, Luke Bowery, employment lawyer and partner at law firm, Burges Salmon LLP:
- Offers an overview of the legal framework which applies when implementing a redundancy programme;
- Briefly considers alternatives to redundancy;
- Explains how to manage common restructuring scenarios through a case study format; and
- Considers three difficult issues which can arise when managing a restructuring and redundancy process, including issues relating to absent employees and adjustments for disabled employees.
