    Unhappy Redundancy Terms Change

    Good day everyone!

    I would like some advice regarding changes with the redundancy payment as shown in the Staff Handbook.

    In the past, our Staff Handbook showed that in the case of redundancies, payment will be calculated on a months salary for each year of service. (Which I have retained a copy of)

    In the last few weeks, I have reviewed the staff handbook again and it now reads that redundancy payment will be calculated on the statuary minimum, being a weeks pay for every year of service.

    This has come to a surprise to me and a lot of the other staff I work with. We are all wondering if this change is legal and fair, as it was implemented without our acknowledgment.

    Brexit is not too far away and we all believe it will have a fundamental effect on the business we work in and therefore we believe redundancies are inevitable.

    Can someone please advise if we have a leg to stand on or do we just accept that we have to put up and shut up.

    All comments welcomed!

    Thanks for reading

    Mark

    Hello,

    do you have a union who would have been consulted?

    Hi Emmzzi,

    No Union here to rely on.

    Just the dictatorship from the CFO!

    So one question then is whether it is contractual. Seems unlikely, but what does your contract say?

    Unless you find a source reliable enough that can give you the original handbook, nothing you can do.
    And even then, if handbook is not mentioned as contractual obligations, it's less valuable than old newspapers.

    First post says he has a copy which is why I am hoping it's in the contract

    Morning All!

    Thank you for your replies.

    The contract says to refer to the handbook regarding redundancies...

    A handbook which can and has changed over time, with no notice.

    Seems like there is nothing I can do if we were to be made redundant.

    Just all seems a little dishonest.

    You are supposed to be notified of such changes but they will argue that putting it up on the intranet or in a handbook is notification. Basically they are burying bad news but it is all legal.
