The Department for Work and Pensions publishes guidance for employers making redundancies

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has recently published their guidance which provides information and support for employers making redundancies in response to the economic climate triggered by COVID-19 pandemic.

There is a Redundancy factsheet for employers which outlines the support employers can give to employees facing redundancy and being made redundant together with links to useful information on governmental and non-governmental webpages including ACAS and The Insolvency Service.  In addition, the guidance provides support for employees seeking voluntary redundancy and early retirement, and for employees who are struggling to cope after being made redundant.

An updated Form HR1 was recently published by the Insolvency Service.
