JMW’s Employment Team Encourage Employees of Hewden to Get in Touch Following Recent Administration Announcement

The employment team at Manchester-based law firm JMW Solicitors LLP is welcoming enquiries from any employees of Hewden who have been affected by the company's recent administration announcement. Over 250 employees of the heavy machinery rental firm are currently dealing with redundancy.

Hewden collapsed into administration after struggling to cope in the post-Brexit climate. The company warned in October that it had been "impacted by market uncertainty following the vote to leave the EU". Its most recent annual accounts revealed a pre-tax loss of over £16m on sales of £105m. JMW is urging employees who require legal advice at this uncertain time to get in touch and find out more about the options available to them.

JMW has handled various similar cases, including the administration announcements of City Link, Carcraft, JJB and many others.

Liz Cotton of JMW’s employment team, said: "Redundancy is an extremely stressful process for those involved. Following the recent announcement by Hewden, JMW would like to reach out to the affected employees and assure them that we are on hand to offer advice and guidance on the next steps to take."

If you are an employee of Hewden who has been affected by this announcement and would like to find out more about your legal rights and what you are entitled to, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0161 838 2742.
