Redundancy: consultation, selection and ‘fire and rehire’

Available from: 09/05/2024

This webinar will examine the duties which are placed on an employer during the redundancy process, and the rights of employees faced with redundancy.

You will also explore the ways in which the fairness of redundancy might be challenged, as well as the strategy adopted by some employers of ‘firing and rehiring’ and consider how it differs from the procedures required for redundancy.

The webinar will cover the following:

  • The statutory definition of redundancy
  • Determining the pool of those who are at risk
  • When is a pool of one fair?
  • Does the employer have to consider ‘bumping’?
  • Selection criteria: do they need to be objective?
  • Avoiding discrimination in selection
  • Automatically unfair redundancies
  • Maternity protection
  • Do scores have to be disclosed to employees?
  • The employer’s duty to look for alternative employment
  • Should the employer provide an appeal?
  • Redundancy payments and suitable alternative employment
  • Collective consultation
  • Protective awards
  • How does the practice of ‘fire and rehire’ compare with redundancy?
  • Rights of the employee on insolvency of the employer
