A new YouGov study commissioned by ACAS reveals that nearly one in five employers (18%) are likely to make staff redundancies in the next year.
ACAS advises employers to consider all possible options before going down the redundancy route, as other solutions to their situation could often be found through consultation with their staff, employee representatives and unions.
