Successful businesses need to have the right roles and the proper structure to ensure they are operating efficiently. During business growth or market changes (such as changes due to Covid-19 - check out our support offer here https://www.livewirehr.co.nz/covid-19-support/), often those roles and structures need adjusting to ensure continued business success. These changes aren’t always easy, and outcomes are always better when you follow a process and act in good faith. However, while case law establishes a process of best practice, there isn’t a hard and fast process to follow in all situations. Throw in all the new Covid-19 policies, and it can get complicated pretty quick.

If you are thinking of restructuring your team, we can come alongside and support you through the process. We can advise you on how to apply the best practice process to your business, or organise the process for you. All you need to do is let us know what level of support you are after. 


A challenging and often upsetting part of restructuring is that sometimes redundancies need to be made. For a redundancy to be fair and legally compliant, a thorogh and sound restructure process must be followed. While it might be tempting to get it over as quickly as possible, following best practice during this process will ensure that your employees are treated fairly and that your business is protected from any legal action.  

Our team can talk you through the process and provide tools to make the process easier, such as redundancy letters and exiting checklists. For advice or support, give our team of employment experts a call.
