About Me


  1. I was recently made redundant as the company is in financial difficulty. The director is completely dodgy having rolled the company a few times to get rid of debt and not pay his creditors. I have been offered the correct redundancy payment of 3 months as worked there for 2 years, they also promised me a payment of 3 weeks gross pay. I have received a letter stating these payments will be made as my monthly salary with the final payment having the extra included. I have been advised by the ops manager that the director is planning to roll the company again soon. I now have
  2. 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
  3. Hello all, Posting on behalf of a work colleague. Have passed them site details and suggested they register themselves. The person in question works as a cleaner for a third party company who have a contact with our business. Our business is part of a much larger group who are currently restructuring. As part of the restructure, our business is moving from its current facility to a new shared site along with other parts of the organisation. For this reason our contract with the cleaning company is due be terminated. This now leaves the cleaner, who has 8 years ser

  7. I work for a subsidiary of a large company that has been bought recently by a larger international company. In their restructuring it is looking like our subsidiary is no longer of interest to our new masters, so they'll be selling it on. When this happens will we be made redundant with the old company and 're-employed' on new & undoubtedly sh1ttier contracts, (based on this company's reputation) with the new one or will we just be TUPE'd over seamlessly without issue? If this new company just decides to sell to a company I don't ethically respect/want to work for, then if I refuse t

  10. My husband [62] worked for a local family firm of printers [20 people] for the past 10 years. Ten years of night shifts [which he loved], late salaries, salary cuts, unhealthy/dangerous workplace [rain falling on his working machinery], he would get left out of company communications [policy changes] and the list goes on their penchant for cutting corners and demeaning temporary staff, but whenever there was a rush job behind schedule my husband would be called out. And would resolve. Thanks to forty years of printing experience. One habit that drove m
  11. Hi All, Again posting on behalf of a family member, I will give you a break down of facts and what has happened to try and stick to the point. Partners Sister was employed by a Railway Museum 4 years ago as a curator She has asperger's syndrome so can be difficult in some social situations Within the 3rd year she though everyone had a problem with her (how true this was we don't know.) Within the 3rd year there was a problem with one volunteer that had overstepped his duties (cleaned her office without permission) that caused everything to flair up and he was asked to lea
  12. Hi I think my employer is trying to force a redundancy. After several promotions and promises of additional resources which were never forthcoming, a few months back they announced a part of my job had changed. More recently they announced in a meeting where there were others present that someone else was coming in to take over another part of my job and report to someone else and that I should hand over to them. I also know that further changes are afoot. I didn't agree to these changes so have to do something. A redundancy situation couldn't be fair as the work has not dimi
  13.

  14. I am currently off work through depression. I have been off for nearly 3 weeks and my current fit note takes me up to next Monday. This condition has been with me for years although this is the first time I have taken any time off. I have been in my current job nearly 3 years and disclosed the condition at my pre-employment medical. Although not having any lost time directly with depression I have had 9 days off with a back injury and another 3.5 due to migraines. I have had a lot to cope with over the past 2 years, 3 family bereavements (inc both my parents), 2 terribl
  15. Afternoon everyone, Just a question really as follows: I was made redundant 31/07/2015 and followed all the correct procedures. Went to employment tribunal and won my case, which was not contested. Recieved my judgement order on 18/03/2016, which has not been settled. I found out that my previous employer has since closed the business and as of yet not legally gone bankrupt, called in an insolvency practioner nor liquidated the company. I applied to the insolvency service which is going through now and I received a letter saying that they will pay the redundancy as per employme
  16. This is more for my own information as we may be in a simliar position soon but I was pass any useful infirmation on. The company I used to work for are currently looking to make staff cuts. They have put all staff under threat of redundancy. A Number of positions are being cut with the remaining ones having changes made to their title, terms etc. and staff invited to apply for these positions. One individual requested and applied for voluntary redundancy or early retirement. This was refused. He has then decided not apply for any of the postions. The company in respo
  17. I currently work as a Deputy Manager (one of 300) for one of the big four supermarkets, and they have recently announced a new contract change that comes into force on Monday 18th April. In effect we are being demoted to a lesser position, that being of a duty manager. They argue that our job role is not really changing as we will still be doing the same job we have always done and they will not be reducing our pay. However it is a HUGE drop in status as our current contract states we are 'autonomous decisions makers' which classes us as senior business leaders and opts us out of working
  18. My employer recently (four months ago) ran a day (8am - 5.30pm) and night shift (5.30pm - 4am). They gave notice to end the night shift, offered the night shift employees options of jobs on the day shift or redundancy. My employer is now discussing whether to change our current day shift to a double day shift of 6am - 2pm/2pm - 10pm. Will they have to offer us redundancy if some of us cannot work this new shift for family/childcare reasons?
  19. Hi all. Please can I ask have the redundancy pay rules been changed lately? A friend told me today that there is now a maximum of 12 weeks redundancy pay? Apologies if this is a sily question.
  20. Evening all, I was in a bad motorcycle acccident in April 2015, this kept my off my work, an oil Rig Worker offshore in Scotland/Aberdeen, due to mulitple broken bones etc. Come July my GP suggested i could return to work on an ammended duties note, basically so i could work in my employers yard doing 'light duties' untill i was fit to return offshore. My healing didnt go to plan, and after many visits to hospital and x-rays, the consultant doctor opted i would need more surgery. This lead to me being sign off unfit to work again in September. I had surgery in November, and remained abs
  21. I work in a small office. I'm the only part time employee. Due to my chronic fatigue syndrome and other illnesses I work one day a week. That was the deal with the employee before me due to her family comitments. Additionally I cover holiday and sometimes sickness. I was of the opinion that this was by mutual agreement, when it suited me and them and that I could say "no" Apparently not. A few months ago, I was ill and received a call asking me to go in, I said no as I was ill. My boss was very abrupt and I heard later that she'd been angry that I hadn't. My job was to cover sick leave.
  22. The company I work for last Friday informed us five staff from our office were under threat of redundancy. Two production staff and three designers. We were then informed at the start of our 2 week period, that the two prod staff were gone and only two designers were needed. I offered voluntary redundancy straight away which I have only found out today nine days later was refused through an email from our Northern HR, the decision has come from London HR who we have not spoken to or seen. We have been informed our interview is tomorrow (we received a letter today), this will
  23. Hi guys, happy new year to you all! I hope someone could give some advice/their point of view on a situation that has arisen with a previous employer and staff member of my previous employer. Around July last year I started working for a new employer, following on with a career path in IT repair which I had worked in for three years previous. I successfully passed my probationary period of three months and subsequently was given a full-time contract. After reading through the contract, it became apparent that my job title was incorrect or was not for the position I applied for. So I had a
  24. OH works in a team of 5. They have been through the consultation period and were told 1 had to go and all were offered voluntary but no-one took it. A similar vacancy in another part of the company was offered. OH asked about it and was told go for an informal interview which he did. They told him to start next week great he said and was told that due to him taking up new employment everyone's job was safe. He has now been told that when he starts he has a 4 week trial period. We have checked this up and this is the norm apparently. He has been told that if the redeployment is unsucce
  25. Hi, I wonder If someone can give some advice. My friends daughter had her baby a month ago and is on maternity leave. She has worked for her employer for over 6 years.
