Redundancy & Redeployment
The University shall ensure security and continuity of employment for as many of its staff as is reasonably practicable. Every reasonable effort will be made to avoid redundancy situations arising and to avoid making individual members of staff redundant. However, it does recognise that the requirements of the organisation may necessitate changes involving redundancy from time to time. In the unfortunate event of having to make staff redundant, the University will act in accordance with all relevant legislation and the University’s policies, Statutes and Ordinances.
The requirement to redeploy staff may arise due to redundancies, organisational change and the non-renewal of fixed term contracts, as well as reasons connected to individual employees. The University wishes to retain the skills, knowledge and experience of its staff wherever possible and recognises the benefits of redeploying staff to ensure their continued career elsewhere in the University.
The documents below detail the University's policies and procedures for managing redundancy and redeployment:
