7 October - Due to the uncertainty of the current COVID-19 community outbreak, the Auckland In Short: Employment - Redundancy will be held by live web stream only. We are unable to accept any in-person registrations for this presentation and apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause.

The landscape is changing rapidly in these uncertain times, however, it remains as important as ever that care is taken when declaring an employee’s position redundant as the courts can, and will, enquire into the merits of the decision. This seminar will look at key developments in the employment redundancy arena, including the effect of COVID-19 and the wage subsidy, and will help ensure that you are able to provide your clients with robust advice, whether you are representing the employee or the employer.

This seminar will include:

  • Practical tips for assisting your client to develop a robust business case
  • The effect of COVID-19 and the wage subsidy upon restructurings
  • A discussion of “relevant information” and what is required to be disclosed
  • A conversation around good faith consultation
  • A review of selection processes
  • An overview of the obligation to redeploy – can your client require applications or is there an obligation to automatically redeploy?
  • A discussion of employer obligations towards employees on parental leave during restructuring processes.

Learning objectives

By attending this seminar you will be able to:

  • Better advise clients on restructuring processes, selection criteria and redeployment.
  • Better understand how to mitigate the risk of personal grievance claims.

Who should attend

Employment lawyers, those advising SMEs and general practitioners.


A short paper, in PDF format, together with a copy of the powerpoint presentation will be emailed out prior to the seminar.
