Private and confidential

Dear [insert name]

[Insert name] (Company): Redundancy consultation process

Following our [meeting OR conversation] on [insert date], I write to outline the redundancy consultation process that will need to be followed in this case in order to comply with employment protection legislation.

This note assumes that[, as we discussed]:

  1. the Company does not have an existing redundancy policy or procedure, and there is no obligation to offer any enhanced redundancy pay;

  2. there are no employee representatives in place at the Company;

  3. the Company is proposing to dismiss fewer than 20 employees[ at any one of the Company’s establishments or business units] in this round of redundancies;

  4. the Company has not made any other redundancies recently that would bring the total number of employees dismissed (or proposed to be dismissed) to 20 or more within a 90-day period; and

  5. the Company has not dismissed any other employees (bringing the total number to 20 or more within a 90-day period) because of:

    1. a business reorganisation;

    2. changes to terms and conditions; or

    3. any other reason that does not relate to the individual employee(s) concerned.

If my understanding on any of these points is not correct, or if the position changes, please let me know as this may affect the nature of the consultation process you need to follow.

The number of employees is particularly important
