Marks Spencer Redundancy

Key Considerations for Large-Scale Redundancies

Compensation

Following recent announcements from Mothercare and Marks & Spencer to close down multiple stores across the UK, our Employment Partner, Fabio Grech, discusses some of the key issues that arise during large-scale redundancies:

How many employees will be dismissed? If 20 or more employees are to be dismissed at one establishment within 90 days, consultation must begin at least 30 days before the first dismissal takes effect. If the number of employees to be dismissed exceeds 99, consultation must begin at least 45 days before the first dismissal takes effect.
