At Banner Jones, our Employment Law experts in Chesterfield, Sheffield and Mansfield offer expert Redundancy rights advice as well as up to date guidance on redundancy laws.
Redundancy is something that we hear far too often at the moment, but it is an unfortunate fact that most people will go through this at least once in their working life. Being fully informed on your redundancy rights is essential if you are facing redundancy by your employer. At Banner Jones we have expert employment solicitors who are continuously ensuring that they are up to date with the latest on redundancy laws; that way we are able to offer expert redundancy rights advice to all clients.
The law sets out the situations in which a redundancy can arise, but even if the situation you are facing falls within the legal definition of a redundancy, the law still requires your employer to adopt a fair and reasonable procedure. This can include many things and we can offer you advice and support to ensure that you understand the process so that you can make informed decisions and can engage as fully as possible.
Are we able to select candidates for redundancy from amongst part time workers, most of whom work for pin money?
Not if you are selecting these employees due to them being part time workers. Part timers are entitled to the same employment rights as full timers. This includes not being singled out for redundancy. It is unlawful to treat part time worker less favourably than full time workers.
