Workplace Restructuring and Redundancies

Coleman Greig’s experienced Employment Law team can provide expert advice in relation to the legal risks associated with restructuring a workplace, either in response to productivity issues or as a result of a ‘downsize’.
Restructuring a workplace may involve changing an employee’s position and legal advice should be sought before proceeding to minimise the risk of a potential claim if the position, or conditions of employment, are changed significantly. We can ensure that any changes made are compliant with workplace regulations and that they are implemented in the best possible way.
Similarly, we can advise on the best process to follow if you find yourself in the position of making an employee’s position redundant. Our lawyers can assist with ensuring it is a ‘genuine’ redundancy, therefore offering protection from unfair dismissal proceedings and minimising the risks to your business, as well as providing advice with regard to any redundancy payments that might apply.
