Staff have undergone one-to-one consultations over losing their jobs at maintenance services GSH Group on the Isle of Harris.
The company proposes to shut its Tarbert office where 24 people work.
GSH – which is the largest private employer on Harris – plans to centralise all its UK-wide operational and administration activities to its headquarters in England.
One employee said head office bosses interviewed each employee separately in Tarbert. Further consultation sessions are planned, they were told.
It is understood GSH representatives also held meetings with the Comhairle as well as Highlands and Islands Enterprise about the proposed office close-down.
The firm said it was reviewing its operational and support activities across all of its UK offices.
In an earlier statement Ian Davidson, group financial director at GSH said the review was being undertaken firm with a “view to potentially creating a centralised administration function based in Stoke-on-Trent.”
He added: “The Tarbert office is one of the offices potentially impacted by this review.
“The company is keen to stress its ongoing commitment to operating within Scotland and is working hard to support those employees who might be affected.”
The back-office administration of the GSH group is run from Tarbert.
Tarbert is the company’s fall-back disaster recovery base, which would keep the firm running if the company’s computer network systems failed.
