  3. hi thanks postjji and sidewinder for your advice i have spoken to my employer and they have confirmed the company will close on the expected closure date (this is the first time as previously they have always maintained they were trying to continue trading) they have given me a forecast as to what happens nxt and stated my redundancy will be paid seperate to my salary by cheque a week after my final salary payment (this is apprx ten days after i leave, which seems reasonable) my employer has been in my opinion (rightly or wrongly) been sincere despite lack of claririty u

  5. hi all I am currently 10 weeks into my 12 week statutory notice period. i work for a small company that has seven employees that include the director and his wife and more recently thier son.

  9. no its regarding my written response regarding their letter of intention to sell tyhe business including the confidentiality request or my request for a copy of this letter or the fact i requested a copy of the staff handbook i was rather hoping that someone could give a general overview to confirm or refute what has occurred so it prepare me for the meeting to either confirm or refute what is said is true essexboy
  10. my employer is looking to sell his business for personal reasons and made myself aware of this decision verbally two weeks ago last week he put his decision in writing and included a confidentiality clause within the letter which he asked me to sign i was also told that this was to safeguard his sale of the business and the confidentiality clause was within the staff handbook he was most insistant that the signed document was return that afternoon and promised he would provide a copy of the document i did not sign and the document was susequently taken from my possession
  11. this is not a condition of employment and was originally accepted on the request of the foreman i have gained responsibility throughout the company over the last twelve years and would like to relinquish some of my responsibility towards the co as i feel i am being taken advantage of essexboy
