  • Redundancies

    More bad news. In 18 months' or so time there will be a clamour for Commercial Property lawyers and a dearth of available talent. The Legal Profession (especially larger commercial firms) has lagged behind just about every other walk of life which has recognised that fluctuating levels of work call for flexible work forces and that contract/temporary workers can help meet varying demand.

    One can only hope that when demand does pick up again, the firms recognise that this method of employemnt can be in the best interest of both firms and workforce. Sure beats redundancy, anyway.

    I disagree. Temporary workers are not protected. Once a downturn comes along and they are not needed, they'll be shipped off quick as a flash. At least the redundancy procedure gives a degree of statutory protection.
