Employment Lawyers – Employer outsourcing

We were recently asked whether an employer can outsource services and make employees redundant at the same time.  As the employer is likely to be making employees redundant as a result of economic reasons (restructuring), outsourcing the services may be cheaper than having employees. However, the roles have to be matched? Are the roles the same/similar? Would retaining the outsourcing services provide a savings to the employer? If you are an employer, you have to adopt a fair criteria and have a genuine reason for redundancy to abide by the law.
