in Redundancy & redundancy planning
4 replies 61 views
Hi I would really appreciate some help, I work as lunch cover at a nursery school and was offered more contracted hours as breakfast cover and I signed a change in contract form. My role as lunch cover is being made redundant but they have not mentioned my breakfast cover role ( I think an over sight) does that mean I would still have the breakfast cover as it hasn’t been listed as an at risk job. Many thanks

How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
I don’t think you can be made redundant and stay at the same employer. So if you still do breakfast cover then you’ll stay as an employee on a reduced salary and not receive any redundancy.
You will need to discuss it with the employer. As your contract was changed it is now lunch and breakfast (assuming that is why they got you to change the contract). They now no longer want you to do the lunch cover. If they don’t want you to do the breakfast cover then obviously it is redundancy. If they want you to carry on just doing the breakfast cover then it is your choice, you can either accept the change in contract to just breakfast cover or decline the change in contract and the end result will most likely be made redundant.
