O’Donnell McKenna has a track record of advising employers and employees in relation to termination scenarios. We advise employers how to comply with the legal framework in redundancy and dismissal cases. We advise employees on how to protect themselves from redundancy and dismissal and whether the terms of a termination package are fair.
If you have to cut down the workforce due to redundancy, it is important to understand the legal procedures you need to follow. These procedures are in place to ensure necessity and fairness and must be followed to avoid a multitude of terminated employees filing redundancy claims, or unfair dismissal claims with the Workplace Relations Commision.
If you are facing redundancy or dismissal you are entitled to fair procedures. In certain situations pre-emptive action might prevent the redundancy or dismissal. Irrespective of the termination scenario, you need to know the law, understand your contractual position and ensure that you are treated fairly.
