I have a hypothetical question.
The company I used to work for was being taken over about 5 years ago which lead to restructuring and redundancies.
I was about to be made redundant and knew the package I was going to get and leaving date, which actually suited me at the time because it meant that I would be getting out of working night shifts which I always craved to do, so as daft as it sounds I actually welcomed being made redundant. I had another job lined up anyway.
But with only 2 weeks to go before I actually left I got a phone call from one of the bosses saying they have done a U turn on my redundancy and from immediate affect I am no longer redundant.
My question is was this an under hand action and was the company allowed to do this given it was so close to me leaving, and the fact I had to abandon any future job prospect.
I know its 5 years ago, but its a question thats always bothered me. Could I have resisted this and told them I'd rather remain redundant?
