God so sorry to read this. If he is being made redundant he is at least entitled to statutory redundancy, I would get onto citizens advice regarding it. How long has he been with the company? FP

Ah sorry to hear that Lexi. It's just so sh[i:9bx4ksyg]i[/i:9bx4ksyg]t what's happening. I thought though companies had to comply with the "first in, last out" policy when it came to redundancies? Only in H2B's job they had to let someone go recently and they were gutted as she was one of their best workers but he was the last one in so had to be the one to go

I think th citizens information bueraue can help you out here. As far as I am aware if they do not give you date for re-employment they are obliged to pay him redundency ... y-payments

Sorry to hear your news Lexi. I don't know the situation in the South but there is a redundancy payment calculator on this. [url:1evmxggw][/url:1evmxggw] I imagine it is pretty standard across the EU. Good luck.

God lexi Im sorry to hear that, as for the redundancy I know the company my DH works for did this to some staff, they put them on temporary release saying that when it picks back up they'll be taking them back on.
