Redundancies have recently become a fact of working life. There are, however, rigorous processes and procedures that must be followed to ensure that a redundancy situation is handled properly for all concerned and ultimately not at risk of being ruled unfair at employment tribunal.
Recruitment and Selection
A trained recruiter will ensure that the requirements of the role have been properly specified, ensure that you get the right candidate who meets the requirements first time, and ensure that the process complies with law.
Northern Ireland Equality Requirements
Northern Ireland has specific Fair Employment legislation that creates risks in a number of key areas of Human Resources practice. This is such a key area that there is a separate tribunal system to deal with breaches of the legislation.
In recent years there has been a significant increase in the amount of statutory legislation that governs how employee issues must be handled in the workplace. We can provide advice and guidance on navigating complex employee situations such as ill health, disability discrimination, performance issues, grievance and disciplinary matters according to the law and HR best practice.
Contracts, statements of terms and conditions, employee handbooks, and policies and procedures are all key HR documents but they can be very confusing and leave employers unsure about what they really need. We can assist you to get the right basic documents in place for the effective and smooth running of your business and keep them compliant with the law.
People Management Systems
Even small organisations benefit from standardised systems in areas such as absence and performance review to assist them with their people management responsibilities and ensure consistency and fair treatment.
We provide training for you and your staff on a number of practical topics. This can be delivered via on line resource guides, breakfast briefing sessions, one hour seminars or half and full day training courses as required
