Workforce restructuring & outsourcing

Gateley Legal's logo

From time to time employers may face the difficult necessity of reducing head count or reorganising their people.

As well as helping our clients to manage tough head count reduction exercises, our lawyers support organisations with strategic and operational advice on how to change their workforce. 

What do we do?

We advise on other ways to limit employment costs and reshape businesses, including amendments to incentive schemes and implementing a more efficient corporate structure.

We can also help with: 

  • Innovative workforce and agile labour arrangements
  • Secondments
  • Worker status analysis
  • Agency worker and independent contractor advice (for both users and suppliers)
  • Outsourcing projects
  • Equal pay issues
  • Intermediaries (including IR35 legislation)
  • Umbrella companies and pension liability issues.
Regardless of how unusual the situation may be, they will find a solution and reassure us along the right path. They keep it simple and provide a quick turnaround.
