Redundancy can be one of the most challenging and stressful things anyone has to face, and individuals understandably feel daunted and unsure of what to do next.
Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) is the Scottish Government’s initiative for responding to redundancy situations. PACE is a partnership of organisations dedicated to providing advice and guidance individuals need if they are made redundant or are facing redundancy. PACE can help individuals to take stock, consider their career options, and make the decisions that are right for them.
The PACE Redundancy Guide summarises the free, impartial advice and support available in five key sections:
- Understand the redundancy process, your rights and entitlements
- Check what benefits you may be entitled to
- Practical advice on getting a new job
- Identify learning and training opportunities
- Business start-up.
In addition, there are contact details for numerous organisations that offer additional advice and guidance.
