More information

Restructures are naturally unsettling for both employers and employees. Having a sound knowledge of the legal requirements, including procedural requirements of how to undertake a restructure is crucial for employers to ensure that the process is not only legally sound but also as non-disruptive and smooth for everyone. This interactive workshop will guide you through the following:

  • When it is appropriate to undertake a restructure
  • What is the difference between a restructure and a redundancy
  • Your legal obligations when undertaking a restructure process including:
  • the duty of good faith;
  • the duty to consult with employees who may be impacted by the restructure and the extent of information you need to provide to enable genuine consultation; and
  • the duty to consider redeployment opportunities.
  • The key steps required during a restructure process;
  • Some of the key information employees need to be provided with during a restructure process; and
  • Best practice; and
  • Common mistakes to avoid during a restructure process.
