Philip Hyland has been practising employment law since 1992 and since 2002 in his own boutique employment law firm PJH Law. He is well versed in the law and practice of managing redundancy situations, advising employers for over 25 years on all aspects of redundancy from large scale site closures through to discrete departmental re-organisations. He has appeared as representative at hundreds of Employment Tribunal hearings, a good proportion of which were on claims related to redundancy including: unfair selection, discriminatory selection, redundancy payments and collective consultation. At least two of his redundancy cases have ended up as published precedents.
