Getting paranoid, will second income affect my redundancy payout?

Hi I have a full time job, which looks like its going into administration next week. I have a second income selling cards on ebay. will this second income affect my government redundancy payment? I'm thinking am I classed as having a job during notice period or something like that, just getting really paranoid thinking I should wind up my eBay as my redundancy is not to be sniffed at, cheers Mark.

    When you say "government redundancy payment" do you mean your employer is insolvent and the government will be paying your redundancy?
    If you are querying your Council Tax band would you please state whether you are in England, Scotland or Wales

    I think you need to check out exactly what is happening. I am not certain that a company can liquidate a part and expect the government to pick up the redundancy tab

    By "government redundancy payment", do you mean "statutory redundancy" or state payment in the event of insolvency?

    Can you explain better the type of organisation and how one branch can enter liquidation but not the remainder of the business?  Is it a franchise business model?
  • Having a second unrelated job/business  shouldn’t affect your redundancy entitlement.
