Restructuring and Redundancy
As we return to the ‘new normal’, Employers are starting to think about the future and many are considering what their business may look like post JobKeeper as well as planning for 2021.
A recent survey we carried out indicates that 31% of Employers are considering restructuring as an option while 30% are unsure whether they will need to restructure.
It is crucial that if restructuring and redundancies are being considered, Employers understand the risks and steps that need to be taken to minimise a potential claim.
