Answer

If you are thinking of making an employee's position redundant, you need to:

  • inform you are thinking of making their position redundant
  • give your commercial reasons for the redundancy
  • let the affected employee comment on your reasons before you make a final decision about the redundancy

Your employee can't stop a redundancy process. As long as you are not dismissing for performance related reasons, an employee won't be able to stop a redundancy.

“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
