In August 2007 we had to make some cut backs, so two departments were merged together, and most employees in those areas were made redundant.
The company now seems to have picked back up, and we now need to re-employ in the areas that were made redundant. Although the job is very similar to what it used to be, it is not exactly the same.
How long after redundancies are made, can we re-employ staff in that area again?
Can we also go back to those that we made redundant and offer them a job, as we know that they will not need so much training?
I would be grateful of any information given. Thank you
