Redundancy Advice For Irish Employers
COVID-19 is forcing many employers into tough decisions around redundancy. Redundancies are sometimes necessary to protect your business, but redundancy law is also a technical area and failing to comply with the rules can make a difficult situation worse.
Have you paid the correct redundancy pay? Did you calculate the notice periods correctly? Are there any alternatives to redundancy available? Is this a collective redundancy situation? Have you carried out a consultation process?
It’s essential that, as an employer, you ensure the above are in order prior to confirming any redundancy – or you could leave yourself open to various different claims such as unfair dismissal, discrimination, or breaches of redundancy payments legislation.
Carrying out a consultation process can be daunting, as can the potential consequences of getting it wrong. Our experts are here to assist you and we’ll make sure that all the correct steps are followed, reducing stress for you and your employees along the way. We can put you on the right path when it comes to managing redundancies, whether it’s a standard or collective redundancy, a case of layoff or short time; our experts can help.
