Redundancy Workshop

Event aims

As voluntary organisations emerge from the immediate crisis of Covid-19, the extended furlough scheme changes and its current conclusion in March 2021, organisations may face some tough decisions about their future and the future of their staff.  Some may find they need to look at restructuring and potential redundancies. This workshop will look at what redundancy means and the correct fair procedures which must be followed to be legally compliant, including a Q&A session and case study review, together with other related issues.

Who should attend 

This workshop is designed for trustees, chief executives, line managers and other key decision makers of voluntary and community organisations in North Yorkshire. It will provide a general overview of the redundancy process and then give participants the opportunity to ask our HR Advisors and Development Officer questions they have on the redundancy process and other related issues.

What will you learn? 

Throughout the workshop, we will explore:

  • How to avoid redundancies
  • What is a redundancy and understanding legal and ACAS guidelines
  • The necessary technical steps to follow when applying redundancy procedures fairly
  • Other related issues
  • Answers to pre-submitted questions
  • Case study review and discussion

What’s included 

The workshop includes time for a question and answer session. For this Q&A we would like attendees to email their questions in advance to by Tuesday 1 December 2020.  Please mark your emails Q&A December 2020.


This training will be delivered by Jane Hudson and Bob Owen, HR Advisors who both have extensive HR knowledge and experience in supporting organisations with their HR issues.
