In the midst of economic uncertainty, many businesses will have to make difficult decisions around redundancy programmes, some for the first time.
With this in mind, Bellevue Law is running a free, anonymous to attend webinar for HR directors and founders, to share useful information and tips around doing redundancy ethically and operationally well for those who leave and those who remain.
By doing redundancy ethically, and abiding by the legal precautions, businesses can optimise the morale of staff who remain and maintain the reputation of the business.
The session will be chaired by Bellevue Law’s founder Florence Brocklesby, who is a specialist employment lawyer with extensive experience in advising both employers and employees on redundancies. She will be joined by Bellevue Law’s senior consultant, Susie Al-Qassab, and tech HR expert Brian Evje, who currently works as the HR Lead at NREP.
Susie will offer advice from an employment law perspective as she regularly advises individuals and businesses on all aspects of UK employment and HR related matters, with a keen focus on a people-focused approach.
Brian has acted as the HR lead for venture-backed Silicon Valley and UK startups and global innovation organisations and has experience dealing with redundancies across the US and the UK throughout his career, he will share practical guidance from a HR perspective.
“Sadly, in the current economic climate, many businesses are having to consider redundancies. Unavoidably, the process will be difficult for the employees affected, their colleagues who remain and the leadership and HR teams handling the process.
“However, it really is possible to handle redundancies ethically and legally. There’s a lot that employers can do to make the process easier and fairer. And, if it feels fair, even if unwelcome, it will most likely be smoother, and swifter and crucially, the business will retain the trust of those who remain.
“The conversation with Brian and Susie will look at the redundancy process from both a HR and legal perspective, with time for questions at the end. We recognise the importance of anonymity for this session, and so those attending won’t be visible to others on the webinar.”
The session will take place on the 31st of January 2023 at 9am hosted on Zoom.
