Advice on 'Voluntary Redundancy '

My husband reached retirement age recently and has been furloughed since December.
He was asked to attend a meeting to talk about redundancy .
We have found out that an apprentice has been employed and is doing my husband's job.
Also he signed a letter agreeing to be furloughed until the end of June  but they now want to change this and start to pay him his gardening leave entitlement  instead . He feels his gardening leave entitlement should begin when his furloughed time ends.
He has worked there over 25 years.

    Furlough can be terminated at any time by the employer.

    Why have you given this thread the title of "Advice on `Voluntary Redundancy`"?  How has it been presented in the "meeting to talk about redundancy"?

    There is no retirement age exceptions apply but need justification.
