Redundancy and Avoiding the Pitfalls: An Interactive Seminar bringing together the Law and Employee Engagement

May 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

11th May | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm – With Brexit looming, businesses and organisations need to evaluate their options including staffing requirements and whether redundancies may need to be considered in the future. Providing some useful guidance and tips on how to manage a redundancy process and engaging with staff in the right way, this workshop will guide you through some of the pitfalls.


In this workshop, employment lawyer Seema Gill will look at the redundancy process and how to avoid the legal pitfalls. Employee engagement specialist Jasmine Gartner will talk about best practice communication in a redundancy situation and how to keep people as engaged as possible through difficult change.


We’ll be examining redundancy and how to handle it from our two different perspectives. Together, we’ll provide some guidance and some practical information.


What will we cover?

The legal view includes:

  • Understanding the legal definition of ‘redundancy’
  • What you need to know about consultation
  • How to manage a fair selection procedure including identifying an appropriate pool
  • Issues around the duty to look for alternative employment


The employee engagement perspective:

  • A definition of employee engagement
  • A model for communicating with employees through difficult change
