Help on time limits for Redundancy

Options
Hello there I hope someone can reply to this question.

I have just realised that when I was made redundant from a job in 2015
after 6 years of continuous employment, they did not include payment
of untaken leave, which I know now I was entitled to.
I read on the acas website that you have 6 months time to make a claim from your employer.
Is this correct? Have I lost that money or can I still claim it?

I feel like I was taken advantage of, at the time I did not take any precautions and
did not involve the Union in the process.

    Others will know better than I do, but you may be able to claim through the small claims process?


    See what others say.

    Thanks for your reply, but I am not sure your answer apply to redundancy
    and if for these issues other regulations apply, I read somewhere else
    that you have to claim within 6 months, but not sure if this applies for errors realised later.

    You aren't claiming redundancy. You are claiming outstanding pay

    Were you put on garden leave ? Most employers put in the settlement agreement that unspent leave must be taken in garden leave, check your settlement agreement.
