What are the 5 stages of redundancy and career transition services?

The five stages of redundancy are:

  1. An HR discussion with the exiting employee will discuss how the redundancy came about, their plans after leaving their job, and any related information.
  2. The Employee handover meeting is a meeting with colleagues to cover any outstanding work and important dates such as building maintenance or security access reminders.
  3. End of employment paperwork- when an employee leaves, it's still necessary to close payroll entries and export transactions ready for handover by another party.
  4. Company announcements for the remaining employees- notifying staff that there have been redundancies to offer counsel if required in these circumstances.
  5. Outplacement Support and assisting existing employees in transitioning to a new role – our team of experts offers outplacement support to help people like you find new employment as soon as possible. Our team of experts will help you every step of the way. Outplacement support is a particular type of support for people who have been made redundant, including help with writing a resume that stands out, coaching you through tough interviews, and helping you find your dream job.

What are the 3 types of redundancy?

Organisations might have to make redundancies because a company is going bankrupt, relocating, restructuring, or technological advancements. Redundancy can take many forms and can lead to insecurity, so it's natural to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about your future after a redundancy.

The three types of redundancy are:

  1. Organisation bankruptcy due to competitive reasons or over globalisation
  2. Relocation or restructuring for sustainability reasons
  3. Technological advancements which eliminate the need for specific roles.

Often, you may be part of the impact of organisational change, resulting in the organisation needing to reduce existing employees.

Do I need a solicitor for redundancy?

A solicitor is just one of the ways to help with redundancy, and in its simplest form, you don't even need to use a lawyer. Generally speaking, there are only two kinds of redundancy that might require legal help - when discrimination or if a company closes down entirely.

It's important not to be intimidated by lawyers so you can find your solution without an expensive third party, who may or may not know better than you about your circumstances. You can think about who or what could help with your problem first, but as we mentioned above, sometimes all that's needed is time to pass before your issue diminishes naturally on its own.

What is outplacement? And How Does It Help with Finding New Employment?

Leaving former employees without a plan and support for transitioning to new opportunities can lead to feelings of anger, betrayal, and depression. These emotions could turn into legal risks if not managed correctly. Job outplacement services are specialists in helping redundant employees transition from their current role to the next job.

Outplacement services can provide transitioning employees with resume writing tips, interview coaching, and job-search advice. They can also help the job seeker connect departing employees with potential employers.
