Public Sector Cuts and looming job losses strike fear for UK business

16 February 2011

With fear and uncertainty in the air, many employers both in the public and private sectors are again faced with making tough decisions to protect the future viability of their businesses.

For many business owners, the prospect of making job cuts is a daunting task. Managers and Directors are not only faced with coping with the upheaval and emotions that redundancies can bring, but working their way through the minefield of employment legislation can be even worse.

Andrea O’Hare, Head of Personnel and Employment Law at Citation commented “Now more than ever, employers are under increased scrutiny by Employment Tribunals to ensure they are legally compliant when considering redundancies.” Employers need to understand how to handle redundancy situations appropriately, otherwise they run the risk of negative publicity and the possibility of large claims.
