I was told back in Feb 2018 that my company would be closing the factory on Jan 31st 20, they gave us our redundancy letters containing our monetary figures and a redundancy date of 31st Jan 2020.
Then in May 2019 they told us this was to be extended to 31st July 2020 and again received letters with revised figures etc.
The week before Christmas they then told us that no one can leave in 2020 as the site they are moving our work to has had problems.
I wrote a letter stating that I wished to formalise being made redundant in July but they have rejected it stating no one can leave then but they are allowing around 30 people to go in January.
My questions are do I have a right to leave in July as stated and also the original date we were to be made redundant us the 31st January does this mean technically I am redundant on the 1st of Feb due to not been offered a new contract for the extended periods they’ve asked for?
Thanks in advance for any comments/info
