Overview

Businesses are often faced with the difficult decision of restructuring their operations in order to remain profitable under ever-changing internal and external forces.

Restructures often lead to positions being eliminated from the organisation by way of redundancy.

It is imperative for employers to understand the difference between a genuine redundancy and other forms of termination of employment. Restructures and redundancies need to be carefully considered into order to comply with the relevant laws and in turn, mitigate the risks of any claims.
