The process of dismissing employees and offering them re-engagement on new terms as a way of managing a variation of contract has attracted a lot of controversy. It is seen by some as an imbalance of power, and by others as a necessary tool for management.

In response to the controversy the government has issued a new Code of Practice, setting out some safeguards in the ‘fire and rehire’ process.

This short webinar takes you through all that you need to know before you consider using the fire and rehire approach.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • What is meant by ‘fire and rehire’, and when this might be appropriate
  • What we can learn from the long-running case between Tesco and USDAW
  • The process set out in the Code of Practice: Dismissal and Re-engagement
  • Potential legal pitfalls

This pre-recorded webinar will be available to view from Friday 30th August 2024
