This study is an attempt to define an illustrative path for a holistic cognitive exploration in a structured and systematic manner of redundancy process from an ethical approach. The systematic approach tries to make the organization aware of the different possible impacts on people along the whole restructuring process. As a consequence, this research is focused on the conceptual analysis of the different possible ethical considerations throughout the sequential stages within a prototype redundancy process. The findings are the result of logical qualitative analysis through twenty seven in-depth interviews: to people facing redundancy, Human Resources Managers and remaining employees of three different multinational companies. Additionally there was carried out three focus groups, as well as the revision of academic literature. This article shows that the ethical character of an organization represents the best perspective for an optimum interpretation within a realistic context, exploring cognitively the possible impacts and effects that its actions have or may have on individuals
