For many businesses, the end of furlough may mean consideration of restructuring and redundancy. Whilst the furlough scheme has enabled organisations to retain staff during lockdown, the end of furlough will create a number of people-related challenges, with estimates putting the unemployment figure from anywhere between 2-3 million people in 2021.
So, what next? If redundancies or restructuring are necessary, what legal considerations must organisations take into account? What steps can be taken to ensure employees receive the support they need? How can organisations ensure that their employees’ transition out of the business or into different roles is handled with sensitivity and adequate support?
Join us on 18th May for a live webinar with leading law firm, Gateley, as we look at answering these questions in an interactive virtual session. We will provide practical advice and guidance on planning for redundancies and restructuring post-furlough and be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
During the webinar we will cover:
- The end of the furlough scheme and what this means for business

- The key elements of a fair redundancy dismissal
- Supporting employees in times of change – internal and external transitions
