LG consultation results in 14 support staff redundancies

LG has concluded its redundancy consultation, with 14 of the 21 support staff affected losing their jobs.

Two real estate secretaries have been moved into ­positions in the corporate recovery and private capital departments, while five members of staff who were part of the consultation have kept their existing jobs.

A spokesperson for the firm said: “It was never intended that all roles would result in redundancies, so the five kept in place was simply the outcome of the consultation process.”

It is understood that the redundancies were related to overcapacity as a result of changing work practices rather than wider economic questions.

The firm launched the consultation last month (TheLawyer.com, ;26 ­September). It involved nine secretaries in the real estate department, eight evening telephone receptionists and four other secretaries.
