If you are employed, are freelance, or a worker in the UK, Covid-19 has changed the very ground beneath your feet. Are you furloughed or working in an industry, or for an organisation, threatened with job losses? Could you face being made redundant?

“Redundancy in the Time of Covid” will help you with expert “How to” guides, to deal with consultation, Acas and Settlement Agreements. Sources of free legal advice are explained, as well as when you should seek help.

The book will give you information on UK employment law and step-by-step examples showing how to:

1.Get the best from your present job, be that continued employment, a deal to leave or a chance of a successful Employment Tribunal or Civil Court case.

2.Maximise your prospects of gaining a new start in whatever way is best for you, including freelancing or even taking a contract to work for your old employer – with examples from experience.

The book is deliberately informal and kept focussed on just the issue of helping you with your problems, avoiding becoming a long, inaccessible textbook.

The book offers legal information, answering your questions and then posing Seven Crucial questions that you need to reflect on and answer honestly. Your answers, to yourself, will have implications for your partner and family – Christian suggests times when you need to discuss your choices and get their support. You will need it.

The author is an experienced HR professional, qualified in employment law advice and a former Acas Conciliation Officer and Helpline Advisor. He has been aided by experienced business owners and other experts.

Alongside this legal knowledge, Christian Edwards understands that legal solutions must be tempered by your financial and personal circumstances, offering sensitive and understanding options to avoid you having to fight in court.

“Redundancy in the Time of Covid” focusses exclusively on redundancy and how you deal with the process. It cannot create a strong legal case where there isn’t one. What it does do is point out how to use many legitimate legal arguments to keep your job or win a larger payoff now, or in Employment Tribunal.

Four case-studies are used to illustrate the interaction between the law and individual circumstances. Christian shows how the right legal path for one person may be impossible, or damaging, for someone else.

Further sources of expert help are given for those who wish to gather technical legal information for Employment Tribunal.

The book will help you far more than that. It will help you gather the evidence and describe tactics to avoid ever having to attend Tribunal or Civil Court, and if you must fight, to give you the strength to win your case.

Future titles will cover; how to choose to work from home (or from the office) safely, how to with a disciplinary in the new world of remote working and finally what career choices could withstand any future pandemics.
