Redundancy is one of the most traumatic events an employee may experience

Announcement of redundancies will invariably have an adverse impact on morale, motivation and productivity. The negative effects can be reduced by sensitive handling of the redundancy process, redundant employees and those remaining staff.

Dismissal may be termed as redundancy when it results from:

  • Cessation of the business
  • Cessation of business at the employee’s site
  • A reduction or cessation of work
  • Anticipation of a reduction or cessation at work

There are statutory requirements to fulfil when making redundancies. Kiss HR will ensure that the redundancy process is handled correctly, and that the remaining employees remain committed and loyal to the company.
