    Being made redundant advice! 11th Sep 17 at 8:19 AM
    Hi there,

    I was looking for some advice and guidance on my current situation and was hoping some people here maybe able to help.

    Basically my company went into administration behinning of last month, all staff were made redundant with exception of me. I have been told that my services are to be retained for a minimum period of 3 months taking this to the end of October.

    My question is this, i know i will be entitled to redunancy when they finallu dispense of my services, but what i am unsure of is if i would be also entitled to notice pay in lieu. Does anybody have any idea if i would be?

    Thanks

    You are entitled to the correct notice but they can insist that you work it. Notice would be one week for each complete year of service up to a maximum of twelve (unless your contract specifies more).

    To me, the "minimum" word is key.

    They do not know when they need you until, so they have not given you formal notice that you are leaving in october, they may need you for longer than this.

    Technically, as long as they give the required notice, I don't think you would be entitled to any pay in lieu. But it really depends on how the company plays it from now on. Until things are definite you will not know.

    I have received nothing in writing other than a text from the administrator stating minimum end of October. So my interpretation is that i have not been made redundant nor have i received any written correspondence confirming anything, thus technically i believe i am due notice pay.

    Ultimately i am unsure and i cant seem to find guidance anywhere as to my position.

    Thanks, There is 100% no potential for an alternative position as the company is closing.


    I am just unsure whether or not I am essentially serving my notice now, whilst I am being "retained for a minimum of 3 months".


    I am trying to work out what I will be due when I do leave, as I have 6 years full service so am entitled to 6 weeks redundancy. Just unsure on the notice pay side of things

    Notice will be the 6 weeks or contractual.

    At some point they will have to give you notice of redundancy.

    thy probably won't do that while they wind down as they won't want you trying counternotice.

    if they are trying to sell off assets there is the potential for a TUPE.

    Depends what you do and why they still need you.
