HR tip: Notifying the JobCentre of redundancies


These questions are being answered by Learn HR, a market leader in the provision of HR and payroll training and nationally-recognised professional qualifications.

Question: "Do I have to notify the JobCentre if I make someone redundant?"

HR Tip:
It is not necessary to do so but much better if you do because it gives the JobCentre opportunity to help. They may, for example, be prepared to send you details of vacancies so that your redundant employees do not have to go to the JobCentre. They may also be able to offer training opportunities so get in touch with the manager as soon as possible.

You may also find it useful to send a list of the redundant employees to staff agencies and to local employers. Before doing so, however, ensure that you have permission of every employee affected, and in any case omit their names and ages from any information you send.
