Exclusive: Nineteen laid off at QSP ‘taking legal advice’

It is understood the company had focused on its overheads and as a result the redundancies, mostly compulsory, have been made across a variety of departments including administration, technical and finance.

Unofficial reports claim some of the sacked staff are taking legal advice over the manner in which they were sacked.

But QSP group corporate affairs manager, Richard Hannam, said: ‘QSP has grown and changed in the last two or three years. We have looked at the running of our business and have found ways to improve it.’

The company said no more redundancies were planned.
