Transfers & Redundancies

There are many challenges for an organisation approaching a transfer, a redundancy or re-organisation programme. As well as legal aspects, its managers have to deal with the blow to morale which can be felt by its employees.

MacRoberts offers detailed training for managers on motivating and communicating effectively with employees who find themselves within the transfer, redundancy or re-organisation process, together with training on how to lead them through the process.

MacRoberts also offers training on the implementation of such a process, including detailed training on the rolling out of a collective and individual consultation process, and the application of a selection criteria.

The training provides guidance to managers on employment law best practice, as well as practical tips on how to deal with all the challenges faced during such a process, such as identifying pools, applying a selection criteria and considering suitable alternative employment available for those employees remaining.

The training includes mock consultation meetings, the provision of draft selection criteria, provisional selection forms and other papers which are invaluable in such a process.
