Self employed contractor

Hi I’ve been told yesterday that our medical practice is closing down in a few months. It is not the company gone into liquidation etc. I started with them in October and signed an “agreement” and only work part time on self employed basis. I’ve been in discussions for me to be relocated to a different site. However if I do not accept these positions am I entitled to redundancy pay or gesture of good will? Thank you

  • If you are self-employed, then you are not entitled to redundancy. If any exgratia or severance payments are due, this will be outlined in your agreement. But there are no statutory payments due if contractual notice is served properly.

    Even if you were employed, statutory redundancy requires 2 years service which the OP won't have, given they only started in October

    If you're a contractor then anything you are entitled to will be set out in the contract.
