Grievance with selection process

I've been selected for redundancy through a process which seems flawed and which sets out deficiencies in my performance which have never been referenced in performance management meetings. I am not sure whether to take the matter further as I have only worked for the company for about 18 months and I have been told that I have few rights as it is under 2 years. Is this correct?

Many Thanks.

  • Yes. They can terminate your contract without reason.
    Try and leave with the best deal possible.

    With less than two years service they do not need to follow any process and can dismiss you for no reason at all, just by giving you a week's notice (unless your contract specifies more). I am afraid there is no entitlement to redundancy pay (unless, very unlikely, your contract says otherwise).

    I am a little confused as to why they are setting out "deficiencies in my performance which have never been referenced in performance management meetings" because, as I say, they do not need a reason nor are they obliged to offer one.
