Redundancy and re-organisation

In the 3 months to May 2010 the number of people in employment increased (driven primarily by the uptake of part-time work).
With public sector cuts looming, it is widely believed that unemployment will continue to rise across the second half of 2010 and cutbacks to government contracts are likely to impact the private sector aswell.
A failure by employers to progress a fair redundancy/re-organisation process will result in damages awards in the employment tribunal. We would be happy to hold a free consultation with you about your business and redundancy needs. Call Barryome Solicitors LLP’s Employment Department on +44(20)80689315 or email info@barryome.com.

Services to Employers

Our services are retained by small and medium-sized businesses that seek straightforward, practical and cost-effective solutions. We advise on day-to-day issues such as recruitment and retention, contract and policy drafting, responsible behaviour at work, redundancy and dismissal and are readily available to give prompt advice if the matter is urgent. We can spend time at your offices with those responsible for HR, alerting you to impending legislation and the latest developments from the courts, minimising your exposure to risk.
Our aim is to minimise disputes. However there are occasions when a case goes to tribunal and you must serve your defence swiftly to preserve your position. You will not have much time to act and it is essential that you seek appropriate advice in the early stages. Our rates are competitive and we also operate a retainer scheme. If you would like to test the water, we would be pleased to meet with you for a free no-commitment consultation.
