Liquidation Changed to Furlough and now Redundancy.
HI All. I'll try and keep a fairly complicated scenario simple and would be really grateful for any help for my daughter.
My daughter is a TEFL teacher working in a privately run school. On March the 25th, the staff teachers and Admin staff alike, were told by the owner that the School could no longer continue and it would be liquidated within two days 27th. She was unable to pay them for March, which she only told them when informing them about liquidation. Then, a few weeks later (when Furlough was in place by Govt.) the owner informed staff that she would now be able to furlough staff, as there was the possibility of a buyer for the school. She said she'd keep them informed about how things were going by the end of April, but didn't, so staff have been emailing and last week she informed them she was setting up a zoom meeting, because she had not been successful in selling the school.
At the meeting the owner informed them, the school would continue but online and that most staff would be made redundant, this includes my daughter. My daughter has set up a free 30min call to an employment solicitor, but we wanted to see if we could add other advice with it and answer some questions too. Our questions are, will my daughter be able to claim the unpaid March pay, notice pay, unpaid holiday pay and as she's worked for over two years for the company, redundancy pay. This was all very straightforward when the company was to be liquidated but it's a little confusing now.
Any help anyone can give will be so appreciated, as obviously my daughter's quite stressed and upset by this turn of events. Fortunately she has a strong support and family she can fall back on unlike some at this time, so it could be worse and she's thankful for that. Thanks in advance.
