The first step is to ensure that the redundancy selection policy has been applied fairly. It is also important to make certain that loyal requirements for consultation have been met. The information to be presented at any consultative meetings will need to cover the reasons for the redundancy and the steps the company has taken to reduce redundancy. The redundancy pay arrangements will also be covered. The basis for selecting people for redundancy as set out in the redundancy policy should be confirmed.
The next step is to reform those affected. It is important to ensure that the interviews held with those to be made redundant are handled sensitively managers should be given guidance training on how to deal with release interviews.
