ACAS Booklet on Redundancy

  • Posted

ACAS has updated its booklet on redundancy.

In line with all the ACAS booklets, it is becoming more practical and user-friendly. This one contains really useful information, particularly the 'walkthrough' of how to conduct a redundancy exercise in appendices 1 and 2.

The only adverse comment is that the booklet mentions in passing, but does not explain in any detail, the mandatory dismissal procedures which come into force from 1st October 2004. These will apply to all dismissals of less than 20 staff within a 90 day period.
