Employment Law Seminar: Handling redundancies and restructuring

Employment Law Seminar: Handling redundancies and restructuring

Wednesday, 10 April 2013
09:00 - 12:00
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Steet, London, SW1H 0AD


    • Tom Watkins, Director, Dickinson Dees LLP
    • Sarah James, Associate, Dickinson Dees LLP

Details of the seminar:
As the economic outlook remains mixed, management of redundancies and restructuring exercises is still high on the agenda for many HR professionals. Even where workforce head count is not set to be reduced, there is often a need to review existing terms and conditions of employment and modify levels of pay, hours of work, and the job scope. 

This session focussed on the latest developments in the employment law that are pertinent to the employers seeking to implement restructure. The seminar identified HR practices which are most likely to optimise organisational outcomes.
Questions that were covered on the day include:
• What are employers’ collective consultation obligations;
• How to construct selection criteria;
• What constitutes "interchangeable skills";
• When is it appropriate to define an employee as occupying a unique position;
• How to manage multi-site redundancies.
