Being made redundant can be a sad or even traumatic time for somebody, but there are things you can do as an employer that can make this transition as compassionate as possible. This guide will help you make the redundancy process easier and smoother.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected all employers in some way or another – and sadly, for many organisations, this has included the need for cost-cutting measures. For many, this means making the difficult decision to make some of their staff redundant.
