Redeployment Policies and Procedures

​​​​This scheme provides 1 combined procedure in relation to redundancy support service for staff whose employment is at risk due to redundancy, ill health or disability administered by the HR Service. The scheme applies to all employees of the council except those employed to work in schools.

The overall objectives of this procedure are to provide support to maximise the number of these employees finding alternative employment. The procedure provides greater flexibility for services and employees, so that search periods can be extended or reduced subject to individual circumstances and potential vacancies be filled by services whilst providing employees appropriate employment protections.

The council has a statutory obligation to support and assist all employees in these situations to find alternative employment and in the case of disabled staff to make reasonable adjustments to the job and/or working arrangements. In addition, it's good employment practice for these facilities to be provided.

It is therefore in the interests of all council services to ensure that 'at risk' employees (redeployees) are retained by the organisation whenever possible. In addition, it is the responsibility of the redeployees' line manager to ensure that the appropriate officers within the HR Service are kept informed of all proposals affecting staff.
