Redundancy is often a difficult subject for employers to discuss.
However, if you are considering making an employee or employees redundant, or in the process of doing so, we recommend you contact a redundancy solicitor immediately. Their specialist knowledge can be extremely useful in helping to ensure that you can manage the process seamlessly – and will probably save you a lot of money and hassle in the long run.
Farleys Solicitors can provide an assessment, strategic planning and continued advice and support with the whole redundancy process, from start to finish. Our experts can help limit the risk of grievances and Employment Tribunal claims, including ones relating to redundancy.
The most common types of claims we deal with relating to redundancy include unfair dismissal, constructive dismissal, discrimination, and breach of contract.
Our specialist redundancy solicitors can draw upon their vast expertise to advise you on the best course of action, in line with your specific commercial objectives.

Settlement Agreements & Termination Packages
Settlement agreements and termination packages are a legally binding agreement between an employer and a departing employee.
These types of agreements are essential to limiting employment liabilities and protecting against any future claims.
We recommend you seek expert advice or assistance from an employment law firm like Farleys before you take action. Our experts will ensure the settlement agreement or termination package you present is legally drafted, legally binding, and adheres to statutory requirements.
We’re highly experienced in handling both single employee and large group employee settlement agreements and termination packages. Give us a call on 0845 050 1958 to see how we can help you!
TUPE Business Transfers
When a business is sold, either whole or in part, or in situations where there is a service provision change, two specific legal regulations will apply.
The first is called the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 or “TUPE”. The second is the Collective Redundancies and Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (Amendment) Regulation 2014.
By virtue of TUPE and the amendment, the existing employees of a business will transfer to a new employer, remaining protected under the terms and conditions of their previous employment contract. There are also various timely and complex obligations, both old and new, that former and incoming employers will have to account for.
Given that TUPE is a notoriously complex area of law, we recommend you contact us right away on 0845 050 1958 to see how we can help.
