My employer changed my redundancy criteria score after consultation

Like many of you, I am unfortunately at risk of redundancy and have had two consultation meetings to go through this with management. My work used a scoring matrix to decide who would be 'at risk' and my score was confirmed to me at both meetings. Since then, I have found out that management have lowered my score after the meetings without telling me - this bumps me down significantly and means I have no chance of retaining my job. To be clear, management did not get in touch to tell me this - I only found out when I enquired about something else and what they were saying didn't add up. I genuinely thought they had me confused with someone else. As far as I am aware, I will not be given another consultation meeting before my notice of redundancy is issued.

My question is - can this be classed as a fair and 'meaningful' consultation when both my meetings were based on an incorrect score?

    You need to discuss it with them, they may have made a mistake on your scores originally so have redone them or as you say they may have got you confused with someone else. If it can be classed as a fair or meaningful consultation does not really matter the end result will still be the same.
