How employers can avoid redundancies

In this current climate, employers are opting to preserve employment for their employees and avoid redundancies as far as possible. Companies experiencing a temporary reduction in work and unable to sustain the costs of full-time working for all employees can explore the options of short-time working and lay-offs.

Short-time working is when an employee’s hours of work are reduced by a number of days each week or hours during a working day. The employee is paid for the hours worked or in accordance with the statutory guarantee pay provisions. A lay-off is if an employee is not provided with work for an entire 24-hour period and the situation is expected to be temporary.
