Company said delaying redundancy
1 reply 83 views
My husband works for a national supermarket chain that recently restructured. He was told he was not successful, given an outline of redundancy package including PILON and a termination date of 27/3 with a final meeting scheduled for 23/3 to confirm package. Tonight they have just told him he can’t leave for 8 weeks due to COVID-19. Is this legal? We understand there are exceptional circumstances but he still will be out of work in 8 weeks and he would rather finish now. We have a vulnerable child so intended to go into isolation after his final night shift on Saturday night. Can they stop his redundancy payment if he doesn’t comply? Thank you
