Collective Redundancy Toolkit

The Collective Redundancy Toolkit is designed to assist you with complying with the framework of existing legislation

As well as being a distressing experience for those facing redundancy, the whole process can be disconcerting for those making the decisions and can even affect those who still have a job. The challenge for you, the employer, is to manage the process, from the initial announcement onwards, as smoothly and sensitively as possible.
The Collective Redundancy Toolkit provides guidance and supporting materials to help you carry out a redundancy programme within the statutory framework covering areas such as consultation arrangements and minimum redundancy payments.

Potentially, redundancy is a fair reason for dismissing an employee but only if a full and fair consultation process is carried out and the reason for the redundancy dismissal is the closure of a business or workplace or a reduced need for employees to carry out work of a particular type. There is no legal requirement for employers to offer voluntary redundancy but it is good practice to do so as it may provide a way of avoiding, or at least reducing, the need for compulsory redundancies.

Lay-offs and short-time working can be considered as a temporary alternative to redundancy.

This Collective Redundancy Toolkit is designed to help you manage a redundancy exercise involving a minimum of 20 employees in a 90 day period and describes the most common pitfalls to ensure you don’t fall into these traps. If you will be making 19 or less employees redundant, please purchase our Individual Redundancy Toolkit
