Our Employment Partner, Gareth Dando has featured on The HR Director providing redundancy advice for company directors.

Talking to the publication Gareth discussed the various issues surrounding redundancy for executive-level employees, including the handling of benefit packages and redundancy pay.

Commenting, Gareth said:

“As a company director, you may have already been through the redundancy process otherwise this may be the first time you are facing it. Either way, it’s important to be prepared. Individuals can be both directors and employees of a company, and as long as you are an employee, you have the same employment rights as any other employee.

“The process of redundancy is the same for all members of a company, regardless of the level of their job title. If you have been employed as a company director for two years or more, you have the right not to be unfairly dismissed, so there must be a genuine potential redundancy situation, and a fair and reasonable procedure must be followed before the redundancy is confirmed.”
