Restructuring, TUPE & RedundancyWhat would it mean for your business if you could more easily prune the unprofitable parts and shape things better for renewed growth?
Whether you're growing or downsizing, making changes to the structure of your business is one of the most emotionally stressful times for any business owner. The combination of legislation and high emotions needs careful consideration if it's to work out well for the long-term prospects of your business.
If you're downsizing or finding trading conditions tough, making people redundant might seem the obvious route, but announcing redundancies is a difficult emotional process that needs care and consideration. Plus, cutting back staff in a way that impedes future growth can be disastrous.
Together we can explore alternatives to redundancy, such as pay cuts, job-sharing and other arrangements. It means you might be able to avoid losing people. If that's not feasible however, we'll show you the correct redundancy procedures to follow and give you specific guidelines to make the process less painful all around.
TUPE refers to the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations which apply when one business takes over the work of another. If you're going to be taking on responsibility for another company's employees, we can help you understand and meet your obligations under this complex piece of legislation. Not only that, we can help you plan, manage and efficiently carry out the whole process.
So even if you're just considering taking over another business - get in touch and we'll help you work out the HR issues you need to tackle.
No matter how you're restructuring your business, not only will our team make sure you stay on the right side of the relevant legislation - we'll also make sure you're aware of every possible option before making firm decisions about your business' - and employees' - future.
