Hi,

 

We are in a situation at the moment where our employer (local authrotity) is looking at making several staff redundant in order to make savings towards the goverment cut backs.

 

Can they make people redundant and then force the jobs and responsibiities to other staff as they will still needed to be carried out?

 

There is talk of one manager being made redundant and the job being shared between to lower level staff as this will most definately need to be done?

 

Cheers

It's pretty normal practice in the public sector too! Yes, it can be done - usually is done!

I am a barrister specialising in employment law, and only represent employees. My advice on employment issues is advice - not legal opinion - and is based only on the facts you provide. If you want an accurate assessment of your case and prospects, you should get legal opinion from a lawyer - not a public forum. Anything I tell you is for guidance only, and is based on my experience of the law in the context of what details you provide.

Very true! It is the position which is made redundant, not the person or their responsibilities, so providing that it is done correctly, then it is all perfectly in order, and as stated above, normal practice.

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.
