    Redundancy calculation

    Redundancy calculation 14th Mar 17 at 11:53 AM
    Hi everyone,
    Was wondering if anyone would be able to clarify or shed some light on this situation. I've googled and searched and don't seem to be able to find an answer.
    I have 2 jobs
    Job no1:
    26 hours a week been there 9 years
    Job no 2:
    40 hours a week. Been there 9 months

    Job no 1 has been under threat of closure for more years than I care to remember but was given 6 months notice to vacate by landlord in October. (Vacate premises 14th April) We all know that this will mean the end for our employer. As of yet, we have still not been given any letters or notice of redundancy. The business owner has a meeting today with an insolvency company, I also know that there is no money to pay redundancy payments and no significant assets to dissolve. so I'm certain that the end is in sight.

    My main question as I have found out most of my answers regarding redundancy payments and what is due etc already is

    Will my 2nd job reduce the amount of notice pay I might be entitled to?

    On various websites it says benefits JSA or income from new employment will affect the payment but nothing about 2nd current job. I do not receive any benefits nor do I believe I am entitled to them as I have a full time job as well. With no rent/mortgage to pay (living with and caring for my disabled dad)

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    No, the two jobs are separate, therefore any notice on job 1 is not affected by job 2.
