Redundancy Consultation Letter
Redundancy is potentially a "fair" reason for dismissal but non-compliance
with fair redundancy procedures could render you open to a successful
action for unfair dismissal.
The Redundancy Individual Consultation Letter is fully compliant with
current best practice and the requirements of the Employment Rights Act
This Redundancy Individual Consultation Letter should be used by employers
for individual redundancy consultations, i.e. where fewer than 20 employees
are affected by the redundancy proposal. It informs employees of the reason
for the redundancy and the selection process that the employer will follow.
This letter helps to ensure that all redundancy dismissals are considered
and handled fairly, giving those employees who are affected by a proposed
redundancy full opportunity to make representations.
For collective redundancy consultations (involving 20 or more employees),
see the separate Redundancy Collective Consultation suite of documents.
This Redundancy Consultation Letter is in open format. Either enter the
requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit
