We are a company of 5 permanent staff. One role has 'lost' much of its required work due to it being moved offshore. The person fulfilling that role is now left trying to find work to do much of the time. What are my options here?
- Can I legally redefine the role as a 2-days-per-week job?
- Can I make it redundant and ask the employee to contract back to us the remaining 2 days but working remotely (this would fit with the role).
Thanks for any help you can give.
