How to Make an At Risk of Redundancy Letter
This document is GDPR compliant.
Start your redundancy process correctly using this at risk of redundancy letter. When considering employees for redundancy you should make sure the proper process is followed and that employees remain informed at all times. Use this risk of redundancy letter to sensitively explain to employees that their job may be at risk due to a number of specified business reasons and what will happen next.
Use this letter:
You do not need to use this letter if you are just making one employee redundant who is in a unique role and there is no element of selection.
This letter covers:
An at risk of redundancy letter is a formal letter informing employees that they are at risk of being made redundant due to specific business reasons.
Informing employees of the risk of redundancy shows that you are following a fair and consistent redundancy procedure and that you are concerned about employee welfare. It ensures employees are aware of the situation at an early stage of the process and gives them the chance to explore alternative options before being made redundant.
Yes, this letter is not the final redundancy decision, and alternative employment solutions can still be looked for throughout the whole redundancy process.
If you are planning to make more than one person redundant, the next step should be the selection process, whereby you will select the redundant staff objectively, through clearly defined selection criteria.
