Welcome to DLA Piper’s Guide to Redundancies and Reductions-in-Force in Asia Pacific!

Employers across Asia-Pacific are increasingly facing short-falls in work and reductions in demand in a competitive market. Many are having to conduct redundancy processes which ultimately result in decreasing their employee headcount and reductions in-force. Multinational employers need to be aware that the process and tests for redundancy are not identical across borders, and any ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to handling reductions-in-force, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region brings considerable risk to the business.

This Guide acts as a handy aid for employers, offering some insight into when a redundancy situation can be said to have arisen and what the local law requires for an employer to be compliant across the Asia-Pacific region. In particular, Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. The Guide summarises the key employment law issues in each jurisdiction and offers high-level, practical guidance for employers on how to handle the sensitive, and often complex procedures under different legal systems. However, we do suggest that specific local advice is sought before implementing any redundancy termination.
