    Can I advertise for a redundant position after a week?

    Is it ok to advertise for a redundant position after a week of the termination of last employee? The position was made redundant due to project ending and now the project is available with us again? Or we need to ask the last employee to join back?

    Hi aspirant

    I certainly think in all fairness, you should give the last employee a second chance to join his job back unless he has found a new job. He has the first right over that position as it was he who was made redundant. So he certainly deserves to get his position back now that it is available again due to the availability of a new project. So its your moral duty to firstly inform that employ about the availability of his position again and asking him if he wants to rejoin.

    Only if he says no because he has already got a new and most probably, a more secure job, then only you should go for fresh recruitment for that position.Plus it would be also beneficial for your company if that same employee joins this time also as he is experienced and knows much about the working in your company than any newcomer will. Newcomers will certainly take some time to adjust and you also know that. Thus you should first ask that employee and then only advertise for the position if he rejects your offer due to some other commitment.

    I hope you get my point.All the best and Thanks
