• When you are in a position where you need to review or restructure 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 redundancies during coronavirus

    We look for practical solutions to any logistical issues you may have, such as arranging face-to-face meetings, to help find solutions that work in practice but remain legally compliant.

    Our solutions-based approach, combining legal expertise with technological know-how, has particularly proved to be invaluable to our clients during the COVID-19 crisis.

    Managing the redundancy process

    We have significant experience of handling both collective and non-collective redundancy programmes, ranging from one employee to hundreds.

    We can offer full redundancy consultation process management and delivery through our human resources service Kent HR. This enables us to carry out the redundancy consultation for you or work alongside your team, either remotely or at your premises.

    In addition, we also offer added-value services and assistance where requested such as financial-cost-scenario modelling and exit-cost financial projections. These can give you the tools to analyse a number of different approaches to your restructure.

    Support for your employees

    Kent HR also offers outplacement services and other career planning assistance programmes that any exiting employees may benefit from. Please call us to discuss your needs.
