With the furlough scheme, officially the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), expected to come on an end on 30 September 2021, many organisations will be faced with the prospect of restructuring and, unfortunately for some, that may mean redundancies are on the horizon. We are conscious that this is a particularly difficult time for voluntary organisations and people managers alike and, that for some managers, this will be a relatively new process for them. In order to help equip you if you are faced with this situation, we are offering a workshop covering:
- What is a redundancy situation in law?
- Early considerations to alternatives to redundancy
- Collective consultation duties
- Voluntary redundancies
- Ending fixed-term contracts versus redundancy
- Best practice to follow when carrying out a
redundancy consultation process to include:-
- Warning and consulting affected employees
- Selection criteria and selection for redundancy
- Consideration of suitable alternative employment as way to mitigate or avoid redundancy
- Practical tips for conducting redundancy consultation meetings.
- Lindsay Macpherson, HR & Employment Support Service Manager, SCVO
- Lorna Robertson, HR & Employment Support Service Officer, SCVO

- Jemma Forrest, Senior Solicitor at Anderson Strathern
- Who is this event aimed at?
This webinar will be open to SCVO members and the wider voluntary sector in Scotland.
The half day workshop will benefit managers who are tasked with planning, preparing and participating in a restructuring and redundancy process.
