The employment department of S. Horowitz & Co. has extensive experience advising its clients on redundancies and reductions in the work force. Many of our clients include large public institutions as well foreign multinationals that, due to ever-changing economic conditions, need to redeploy, restructure or downsize their human resources.
We support and advise clients through the planning and implementation of redundancy programs and changing the terms and conditions of the workforce.
A large number of clients operate in industries that are regulated by collective agreements, extension orders or are unionised. We have vast experience navigating our clients through any consultation process and negotiating with any unions or employee representative bodies. Invariably, large redundancy exercises do carry the risk of industrial action as well as legal challenge in the labour courts. We have extensive experience in successfully advising clients on labour disputes that may follow on from any proposed redundancy program.
