Good Morning, 
I have had my 2nd and final consultation this morning regarding redundancy,  i have been at the company 3.5 years, so i have 3 weeks notice period to do, and will have accrued 5 day holiday to be paid in part of notice period,  I've been told my redundancy will take effect  from 5.3.21. My redundancy will be paid at 1.5 weeks per full year (so x3) . 
I am currently on full furlough and they have said i no longer need to go into the office before i leave. 
I have had interview/s 1 & 2  for another job which sounds promising (find out today )  but they are wondering if there would be an opportunity for me to start any earlier with them say a week earlier so i would start on the 1st March, how would this affect my redundancy entitlement.

    In theory it shouldn't affect your redundancy entitlement. If you have a good employer they may be quite willing for you to leave a week early, especially as it may save them a few pounds
    If you are querying your Council Tax band would you please state whether you are in England, Scotland or Wales

    Looks like they are putting you on garden leave(100%pay not furlough).

    Could ask for PILON.
    Could use counter notice to leave early.

    Can you take the 5 days holiday owing as actual holiday not ££ and leave 1 week earlier?
