Restructuring and Redundancies


With the cost-of-living crisis looming large, businesses are being hit by rising costs, falling demand and complex supply chain pressures. Many are starting to look at ways to reduce the cost of doing business and streamlining services. But does this squeeze on finances equate to a legal justification for employers to reduce headcount?
