A restructure can seem daunting but the employer can implement decisions that affect employees with ease, as long as its obligations under employment law are met. The biggest change in the last few years, in employer obligations, has been the increased obligations on the employer in terms of good faith and fair and proper process. Timely and practical legal advice can assist.
So what does an employer need to think about before embarking on a restructuring process?
The obligations of good faith and prior determination have been the subject of many personal grievance claims brought before the Employment Relations Authority and the Employment Court. The difficulty is that the threshold for meeting these requirements will depend on the facts in each case.
The key to successful and stress free restructuring is getting timely advice, tailored to your business, from an employment lawyer experienced in redundancy and restructuring, as early as possible in the process. This way, you can ensure that your good faith obligations, as an employer, are met and that the financial benefit of a restructure is not outweighed by a costly personal grievance claim.
