Restructuring and Redundancy


Whether reshaping roles, hours of work or the location of your business, downsizing or closing a business unit, employers have obligations to consult with employees under New Zealand law.

Even in the most genuine cases of business restructuring and/or resulting redundancies, the potential for fall out from incorrect or insufficient process is huge.

Recent case law has further refined the process requirements for employers, and this workshop will help you understand the key principles.
