• When you are in a position where you need to look at reviewing or restructuring your workforce, getting the right professional guidance can be vital to your business’ future strategy and prosperity. The guidance you receive from your professional advisors should be efficient, commercially aware and tailored to you and your circumstances.

    We specialise in helping you to prepare and manage redundancy and restructuring processes which are adapted to the circumstances faced by your business.

    We can help you:

    • design the consultation process
    • analyse and determine the selection pools and selection criteria
    • plan, deliver and record the consultation process
    • prepare settlement agreements, if appropriate
    • keep a clear eye on your commercial aims, balancing legal risk with commercial reality and business needs.

    Managing redundancy during coronavirus – new fixed fee package

    At Brachers we understand many businesses are facing challenging times and having to make difficult decisions for the long-term future of their organisations. Our new package of fixed cost support will aid those who have made the difficult decision to consider redundancies. Our team of employment law specialists can assist you with the redundancy process in a way that is cost effective, efficient and legally compliant.

    We understand why businesses who are looking to save costs are more inclined to take risks, and not invest in legal advice. Ultimately however, not taking required steps in a redundancy process could end up being more costly to your business, in terms of:

    • Damage to your reputation
    • Claims/ awards – for some processes an award of up to 90 days’ pay for each affected employee can be made
    • Criminal proceedings – failure to provide a HR1 when required is a criminal offence

    Our new fixed-fee packages will provide you with:

    • Complete transparency of costs
    • Valuable legal support to the level that you require
    • Access to expert guidance to ensure you get it right and remain legally compliant
    • Support to reduce the risk of claims
    • Guidance on best practice

    Details of the packages of support we can offer, including pricing, are outlined in the box below.
