We help you balance tough workforce decisions with reputational risks and employee interests.

In times of increased financial and operational pressures, businesses are having to reduce costs to survive the challenging circumstances. If you need to restructure your workforce, make redundancies or reduce your payroll costs we can help. 

Our award-winning employment group, is among the North West’s most respected legal teams and includes specialists with extensive experience in handling challenging workforce-related issues who can provide training and support for HR teams.

From discussing and suggesting steps to avoid redundancies or minimising the numbers, to dealing with a full redundancy process, our lawyers will guide you through all the legal and practical requirements you need to be aware of.

What we do

  • Advise large multi-site employers on redundancy collective consultation requirements with trade unions or employee representatives.
  • Work with HR teams to design and put in place business restructuring to achieve cost savings, including lay-offs, short-time working and changing terms and conditions of employment.
  • Plan the redundancy process and advise on legal requirements including pooling, selection criteria and consultation.
  • Review and advise on employee communications and provide scripts and guidance for key meetings.
  • Train and mentor HR teams and employee representatives.
  • Resolve disputes arising post-completion including dealing with any Employment Tribunal claims.
