  • Don't know about you, but being 'asked' to relocate 100 miles away when an employer knows where I live could, perhaps, be interpreted by some people as being able to trigger a constructive dismissal claim. This is especially so when it is still perfectly possible for me to carry out my function for the business in London. Of course, whether such a 'request to relocate' really would be construed as dismissal would have to be decided by an employment tribunal after a full hearing of the facts. It would be interesting to see what previous ruling say on this.

  • I love the use of the term 'consultation process', a ridiculous euphemism. Consultation implies some sort of interactive process leading to a mutual decision. It really seems to be take-it-or-leave-it.
    Beware of smiling Dunkies.

  • This makes sense. They're doing this to cut costs aren't they and if that means cutting some of the flab out of the headcount so be it. This is a business after all.

  • Well, if you can't grow revenues, then you cut costs. Cutting costs are generally a defensive strategy when you are expecting problems with revenues. It is how you save a business, not how you make it profitable.

  • Not a surprise about the redundancies. I was at one of Liam Brown's support staff meet and greet sessions last Spring and he said there would not be any redundancies as a part of this process. Naturally, that that confirmed my suspicions and , I'll be honest, I'm glad I'm out of there.

  • Interesting how "it will not have to transfer the remaining staff under TUPE ". As a buyer of outsourced services myself, I'll now be seeking my legal advice from Camerons as to how to avoid this pesky legislation that tries to protect my employees' rights and gets in the way of my cost-cutting agenda!

  • To @ immaculate pasta - just wait until your employer designates you as 'flab' to be cut off (even though you are probably working your arse off and haven't had a pay rise in three years) - and then sit back and soak up that very special feeling. Bet you'll just love it.

  • I wonder if the name Cameron McKenna will exist as a brand in 10 years. Who cares, Duncan doesn't seem to - only 150 years or so of heritage and it's only a name anyway.

  • @ Anonymous | 25-Jan-2011 12:05 pm - In ten years' time it will probably be called something like CMS Piper or CMS McKenzie.
    By then the process of automating and offshoring front office work will be in full swing too. Great for IT companies, partners/shareholders and workers in emerging markets, not so great for wage levels in the UK...
