I wasn't sure whether I should post this on the redundancy thread or the benefits thread so I hope I've picked the right place. I was told earlier this week that my department at work would be facing massive cuts which were likely to lead to compulsory redundancies. However, I've not been officially told that I, personally, will definitely loose my job.
I have over £6000 in savings and I was planning to make a lump sum payment into my mortgage when the fixed rate ends shortly.
However I've heard that if I'm likely to have to take income based JSA after being made redundant, I shouldn't pay a big amount off my mortgage because I would be penalised for decreasing my capital? My question is: as I've not yet been officially told that I will be made redundant (though I know it's a possibility) can I still make the payment into my mortgage without penalty?

Hi there, i work for a small engineering company with me and one other employee. I turned up for work today and was told there is no work and that we were been made redundant. I've worked for the company for nearly 13 years and on reading various info online i should have had 12 weeks notice + 12 weeks redundancy. As far as i know the company isn't in any real financial trouble yet but, my boss said there is no money to pay redundancys. He has said he will pay us our week in hand and any holidays owing.
I've read about claiming my notice and stat redundancy money from national ins fund but i have a problem.
I started working for the company on 12 july 2000 (i have proof in his employment record book) straight out of school but when i spoke to his accountant she told me that he has put my start date down as mid 2002 which will obviously make a difference to my payout.
Is there anything I can do about this?
and could you give me an estimate on how long the claim will take?
Thanks in advance any help will be much appreciated

I hope someone can help me. My employers sent an email to the staff saying that the office will be shutting on Christmas Eve (it was originally meant to be a workday).
They then asked all of the staff to either take that as annual leave (the majority of us have not got any left) or to work in our lunch break to make up time (7 hours in total). We do not get any other breaks in the day and work from 9-5.
As the office is closed (rather than us choosing not to work) is this legal?
I hope that I have made sense. If you need anymore info, let me know.
Thanks in advance.
