Hi. Wondered if someone could help with my ET please. I am doing this alone so any help would be very much appreciated. My complaint is quite long so Ill just keep the headlines.
In reality I was made redundant due to a breakdown in work relationships. My notice of dismissal and paperwork shows I was dismissed because of redundancy. My role was still in existance and therefore my argument is that I could not have been made "redundant". I was given redundancy pay.
I submitted my ET claim for unfair dissmissal. The organisation sent a load of gumpf back. Most of which doesn't seem relevent and I think is designed to confuse but they have put:
"The reason for dismassal was redundancy which is a potebtially fair reason under section 98(2) of the employment rights act 1996. Without prejudice and as alternative to the above the claimant was dismissed for "some other substantial reason" which is potentially fair reason under section 98 (1)(b) of the employment rights act 1996".
Can I just check that I have understood this please? Part 2 states they can dismiss me for:
C. redundancy or
D. because of law/regulations
And Part 1b says they can dismiss me for any of these reasons or for any other "substantial" reason.
They stated they have dismissed me for 2c (redundancy). All my paperwork says 2c. They can't now say it was for another reason as per part1b can they? Surely then it would not have been redundancy and they would have put "dismissal due to break down in relationships" or sonething to that effect on my paperwork?
I'm getting myself worked up that I'm missing something.
As an aside, I may have to start using "without prejudice and as alternative to the above" as an argument!
Also - they are not abiding by deadlines. We were meant to have exchanged our document list by last Thursday and I still haven't received theirs. Is there much I can do about that?
