How can I avoid redundancies?

Before making compulsory redundancies, you need to look at alternatives, including:

  • non-compulsory redundancies - voluntary redundancy and/or early retirement
  • flexible working
  • laying off casual or contract staff
  • recruitment restrictions
  • reducing or banning overtime
  • filling vacancies with existing employees
  • retraining employees and then moving them to other parts of the business
  • short-time working or temporary lay-offs

Look at your business and see whether there are other things that you can do to improve its performance.

Set your location

Forget my location


When you set your location we can give you details of services local to you, such as Passport offices, driving test centres or police stations, so you can complete any tasks and be away from your computer as quickly as possible.

Your approximate location is stored in a cookie on your machine, but we do not save your postcode or precise location on our servers.
